GRAPHIC VIDEO: Auburn University Gymnast Instantly Ends Her Career with a Jaw-Dropping Injury

Get ready to cringe.

On Friday night, Auburn University gymnast Sam Cerio competed in the NCAA Regional Semifinals in Baton Rouge.

During her first pass on the floor exercise, something went horribly wrong.

The 22-year-old performed a handspring double front, and she mistimed her landing.

Coming in too high, holy cow…she appeared to hyperextend her knees.

As reported by the Times-Picayune, Sam broke both her legs, in addition to dislocating — and tearing multiple ligaments in — both knees.

She was carried off on a stretcher in two aircasts.

The injury was gruesome.

Her Instagram post began with an unsurprising announcement:

“Friday night was my final night as a gymnast.”

Uhhh…correct.

A startling end to a two-decades career:

Friday night was my final night as a gymnast. After 18 years I am hanging up my grips and leaving the chalk behind. I couldn’t be prouder of the person that gymnastics has made me to become. It’s taught me hard work, humility, integrity, and dedication, just to name a few. It’s given me challenges and road blocks that I would have never imagined that has tested who I am as a person. It may not have ended the way I had planned, but nothing ever goes as planned. Thank you Auburn family for giving me a home and a chance to continue doing the sport that will always be my first love. I am honored to have had the privilege to represent the navy and orange AU for the past 4 years with my team by my side. Thank you for letting me share my passion with you. Thank you for letting me be a part of something bigger than myself.

Fortunately, the senior will soon have an aerospace engineering degree to fall back on. In fact, she’s already secured a job with Boeing in Seattle.

Sam’s team was rattled by the tragedy, but the Tigers went on to score their second-highest of the season.

About the accident, Sam’s coach, Jeff Graba, definitely understated it:

“It was pretty tough to watch.”

If you have the will to view it, find the video below. But BE WARNED: IT’S GRAPHIC. My knees are still hurting.

Good luck to Samantha during this time of healing, and in her future endeavors.

Former Auburn coach announces U.S. Senate bid against Doug Jones

Westlake Legal Group 93dfe162-2c25-4ca1-b3a7-a29bad344a14@news.ap_.org1_ Former Auburn coach announces U.S. Senate bid against Doug Jones University of Alabama U.S. Senate Tommy Tuberville The Blog doug jones Auburn Alabama

U. S. Senator Doug Jones, a Democrat from Alabama, has another Republican willing to challenge him for the seat in 2020. Saturday former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville announced his candidacy for the Senate and is running as a Republican. Sean Spicer, former White House Press Secretary for President Trump is onboard Team Tuberville.

Doug Jones won the seat previously held by Jeff Sessions in a special election, in a close race against Republican Roy Moore when Sessions was nominated for Attorney General by President Trump. Jones beat Roy Moore by only half of a percentage point, though Moore had a whole lot of ugly sexual accusations thrown against him in the press leading up to the election. Nine women came forward to accuse Moore of sexual misconduct in the past.

Like many hopeful candidates, Tuberville tweeted out his announcement Saturday afternoon. That seems like an appropriate day given his career in coaching college football.

Notice the MAGA hashtag at the end of that tweet? Alabama, despite the victory of Jones, is still a very red state. Democrats hope to turn Jones’ victory into another win in 2020 but it’s unlikely Jones will win re-election. That special election was a fluke. 2020 is a presidential election year and Trump’s going to be at the head of the ticket. The last poll on Trump’s popularity in Alabama I could find was in January and his approval rating was at 58%. Only West Virginia and Wyoming had higher approval numbers for the president. So, looking like a candidate is huddling with President Trump is important.

Tuberville previously considered running for Governor of Alabama in 2018 as he retired from 20-plus years of coaching college football in 2016. His career began at Ole Miss before going on to Auburn. After Auburn, he coached at Texas Tech and then wrapped up his career at Cincinnati. At Auburn Tuberville’s team went 85-40 in ten seasons. The Auburn Tigers had a perfect 13-0 record in 2004. War Eagle. Doug Jones, by the way, is a graduate of the University of Alabama, Auburn’s rival. Roll Tide.

There is another announced candidate for the GOP challenge to Jones. Congressman Bradley Bryne declared his candidacy in February. Bryne has said Jeff Sessions is a friend from whom he’s sought advice.

Both Tuberville and Byrne are 64-year-old white men and who knows? The Republican primary may be interesting, especially with Spicer in the mix. Will he garner the votes of Alabama fans?

Tuberville’s real challenge may be winning over the large portion of Alabama Crimson Tide fans in the state. In his ten seasons with Auburn, Tuberville went 7-3 against the Crimson Tide. That record includes a six-game winning streak over Alabama, which is the longest for Auburn in the history of the rivalry. Tuberville will have to overcome some not-so-fond memories that at least half the state has of him from his coaching days.

The Republican primary is less than a year away. It’s scheduled for Mar. 3 of 2020. If Tuberville scores a touchdown, he’ll challenge Senator Jones. Jones has the power of the incumbency behind him but, as I said, he only squeaked out a win against a damaged GOP candidate and Alabama is still a red state. Democrats won’t be turning the state blue in 2020.
