Ermon Lane knows how to break a tackle. FOX Sports reporter Amy Campbell probably just wishes he didn’t practice the skill at her expense.
Campbell was on the wrong side of a hit (pun intended) this week when she visited Beaverton, Ore., to film a high school football recruiting competition. She and her colleague, Chad Simmons, set up near the field to chat all things high school football, but they were apparently a bit too close to the end zone, where Lane was looking to make some paydirt.
Lane, a 6-foot-3, 193-pound receiver out of Homestead, Fla., pulled in a touchdown grab and kept going, smashing into Campbell as Simmons tried to break their fall. The best part of the sequence had to be when Lane’s shadow could be seen ominously — albeit speedily — approaching.
Thanks to the magic of Twitter, however, it sounds like Campbell and Lane are on good terms after the bulldozing.

At 30-years-old in his 10th professional season in the major leagues, David Wright has earned the distinction as the King of New York.

PAYING NO MIND
Saying "I know people think I’m nuts," Alex Rodriguez insists he’s not worried about what people say, he just wants the chance to compete on the field.
The level of starpower that the New York Yankees are putting on the field this season is extremely low. There's no Derek Jeter, there's no Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, and Kevin Youkilis have all only played a handful of games, and the Bronx Bombers are only four games above .500 and fourth in the AL East. That lack of production on the field has resulted...
