Luckily, Rutledge wasn't seriously injured and was able to laugh the incident off quickly.

Running back for the University of Georgia, Prather Hudson who hit the reporter immediately apologized her, and after ending his first line he quickly asked her out on a date showing the Baseball infielder Josh Rutledge's wife out on a date that he has a big L on her.

"Hey @LauraMRutledge really sorry I knocked you down," he wrote on Twitter, "but... I can pick you up at 7."

So, Prather was denied with a smiling emoji and silently dragging Josh Rutledge's ring into the conversation, bad luck for our College prospect, but the whole incident gave us a lot to talk about.
