Liberty punter gets ejected for targeting with terrible tackle

Yahoo Sports

Liberty punter Aidan Alves should be part of a tackling instructional video for all the wrong reasons.

Alves got himself ejected from the Flames’ game against Army on Saturday for targeting in what we can only describe as a terrible, terrible attempt at a tackle. Not only could Alves have seriously injured Army’s Mike Reynolds, he could have injured himself too.

Granted, punters don’t spend a lot of time working on form tackling. But this is still an egregious hit even if Alves was just desperate to do whatever it took to stop the punt return. Given that he got ejected for the hit, hopefully he’ll know to never do that again.
