Video: Alabama QB Commit Blake Barnett Destroyed A Defender With An Incredible Stiff Arm

Usually when you see vicious stiff arms like this, they're performed by NFL Pro Bowl-caliber running backs. Instead, this stiff arm was thrown by five-star Alabama QB commit Blake Barnett. The play happened on Friday night, when Barnett's Santiago High School took on Hart High School. Barnett ran a read option with his running back, kept the ball, made a few defenders miss, and literally threw a Hart High defender to the ground. It was brutal, check it out:

Here it is from another angle:

Barnett's a huge guy -- 6-foot-5, 200 pounds -- so he's probably used to bowling over smaller defenders. Still, this was especially impressive, and we bet that this makes Crimson Tide fans excited for when the potential superstar gets on campus.
