6'3, 203-pound University of Florida Safety vs. Guy in a Wheelchair on the Sideline: ...

After being mysteriously suspended and benched for the first two games of the season, Florida safety Will Hill finally got some playing time against Kentucky on Saturday night. The Gators destroyed the Wildcats 48-14. Unfortunately for him, Hill's highlight reel from the victory is limited to only one clip: the moment he accidentally collided with an innocent bystander in a wheelchair on the sidelines. He's clearly trying to break-up a pass intended for Kentucky wide receiver Chris Matthews.  Nonetheless, the video will leave you aghast.
Watch it after the jump.

Here's a better quality video. Hit is at the 59 second mark.

You probably just went through four sequential stages of reaction while watching the video. First, laughter. After all, this is sports black comedy at its finest. Second, concern for the man in the wheelchair. Third, disgust Hill didn't lend a hand to help the man up. It looks like he either asked him if he's o.k. before hustling back to formation or trashed talked him in the same way any defensive player would after making a big tackle.  Finally, guilt. You just laughed at a defenseless and immobile man in a wheelchair getting clobbered by a 6'3, 203-pound safety. Clearly the poor guy was struggling to get up, just like a turtle turned upside down on his shell. If you laughed, you're a horrible, merciless person. You should be ashamed of yourself. In the meantime, how about we watch the pwnage again, over and over again in .gif format?
