Tough competition can lead to true mutual respect.
Check out the Twitter exchange below between Texas A&M linebacker Claude George and Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen. The Aggies and Razorbacks took part in a grind-it-out affair Saturday night in Arlington, Texas, and it’s clear that George thought highly of Allen after Texas A&M left with a key SEC West victory.
Who doesn’t love seeing this?
Perhaps players trade words like this offline more often than we realize. But it’s cool to see the compliments flow for the world to see.
@austinallen8 you're one tough SOB….Respect

@_Sledgehamma I appreciate that. Heck of a player, you got me pretty good on that one in the first half
