That right there is Mississippi State QB Tyler Russell planting his autograph on some lucky fans forehead…in permanent sharpie! Details on the event are pretty hazy, but it appears it was the fans birthday and all he wanted was a little permanent ink from his favorite SEC quarterback.
It appears Russell has another fan who wants some ink. Emily Gagnon, a sports reporter/anchor for KYTX-TV in Tyler, Texas, noticed the photo and had this to say:
Russell had a solid junior season at the helm for the Bulldogs, finishing the season with just under 3,000 yards and 24 touchdowns. He must’ve caught the attention of the Texas reporter because now it looks like she wants an autograph of her own.
Gagnon used to cover Mississippi State athletics back when she was with WTOK-TV in Meridian, MS…hence Russell being her favorite SEC quarterback.
No word on if and when the autograph will actually happen.
This also got us thinking, is there any athlete you would actually want to sign your forehead? We know that Bama fans would let A.J. sign theirs, but anybody outside of SEC country?
