Holy snakes! Star running back survives reptile in helmet
By Cameron Smith

Darrick Strzelecki, a star running back for Gravette (Ark.) High, is used to close encounters with linebackers on the football field. He's not so accustomed to run-ins with reptiles on the field ... or at least he wasn't until a practice on Tuesday. That's when Strzelecki took off his helmet during a water break and found what he thought was a toy snake. As it turns out, it wasn't a toy at all, though he only discovered that when the reptile slithered away.

"It looked like a rubber snake, and I thought someone had played a practical joke on me," Strzelecki told the Associated Press. "When I grabbed it by the tail, that's when it jerked, and I dropped the helmet."

Luckily, a Gravette assistant coach was able to confirm that the snake which hid in Strzelecki's helmet was non-venomous after killing it shortly after it slipped out of his head gear. A day later, school officials made a clean sweep of the school's locker room and all of the equipment used by its teams.

You can see Strzelecki, who was named to NWAOnline's Small Schools 2011 preseason team of the year, in action below.


Here is the whole story and a great video:
