Found January 30, 2013 on Holdout Sports:
Western Illinois Leathernecks mascot Rocky accidentally took out a cheerleader recently when he wandered into her path while she was doing backflips on the court during a practice session. We can only surmise that the person inside the Rocky costume did not see the cheerleader coming. Fortunately both of them were OK, except for the humiliation of enduring the embarrassment from the video footage going viral. H/T Sports Grid. Visit us at and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.
