Want to know what it's like to be a linebacker? This brilliant helmet cam footage takes you there

Terrifying if you ask us.

THANKS TO THE Hurricanes football team of Miami University, we now have a better glimpse of what it’s like to be in the middle of college football action. And it’s about as dizzying as you might expect.

At their annual spring game Miami outfitted linebacker Denzel Perryman with a camera on his helmet. The footage makes it is clear that a linebacker like Perryman has mere seconds to decide where to go and what to do on the field.

Whether it be finding the running back amid offensive linemen who are coming at him at sophisticated angles, or dropping back into pass protection to find a receiver and the ball, Perryman’s helmet cam reinforces just how fast a game of American football really is.

How about that collision after 1:50? Scary.
