Legendary Auburn ball boy Jake Longenecker collides with defensive end, breaks nose during Auburn practice

Not even his road runner-shaming, T-shirt-inspiring, internet-crashing speed could keep celebrity Auburn Ball Boy Jake Longenecker from an accidental collision with 6″6, 243-pound defensive end Raashed Kenion.

The encounter at the Tigers’ Friday afternoon practice broke Longenecker’s nose, but not his sense of humor. After his nose was popped back into place he was taken to the hospital for treatment, but not before Instagramming a gruesome photo of himself, smiling through the pain, blood-stained shirt, one hand giving a thumbs up, the other clutching a towel and a bag of ice.

The caption: “broke it #auburnfast”
