Unknown to the public, Georgia Tech defensive backs Step Durham and Lance Austin fought in the locker room before a spring practice started this past spring. Video of the fight surfaced Tuesday morning from TMZ Sports.
However, it wasn’t really much of a fight. Austin, the shirtless man on the left in the video, walked up to his teammate, Durham, who then proceeded to knock him out with a single punch. Austin fell into a chair and appeared to be unconscious in the video.
Watch it here:
TMZ reports that “Georgia Tech’s football coaching staff became aware of the incident between the teammates and friends shortly after it occurred. Discipline was handled internally.”
TMZ also reported that either player missed any games because of the incident. Both players also made it clear to the Yellow Jackets coaching staff that there was no lingering hard feeling between each other.
Georgia Tech finished 5-6 this year and will be one of just 4 ACC teams not in a bowl this postseason.
