When Gravette (Arkansas) High School senior Darrick Strzelecki took his helmet off during a recent football practice, he found a snake in his helmet.
Here’s an excerpt from the story:
During a break about 15 minutes into practice, Strzelecki took off his helmet and initially believed his teammates were teasing him.
“It looked like a rubber snake, and I thought somebody had pulled a practical joke on me,” he said. “When I grabbed it by the tail, that’s when it jerked, and I dropped the helmet.”
