Cross-country runner gets run over by a deer
Watch out for that ... deer?
Who said cross-country wasn't a contact sport?
Just ask NCAA cross-country runner Justin DeLuzio what he thinks after he was hit by a deer while competing in the Mideast Regional championships in Pennsylvania.

Oh, deer is right! DeLuzio is "a little sore and bruised up," but OK and finished the race.
The guy that got hit by the deer is Justin DeLuzio, a runner for Gwyneed Mercy University... He finished that race. 31:16 for an 8k.—@CVCcrosscountry
Although DeLuzio got hit by what looked like a "linebacker" deer, the senior from Gwynedd Mercy University has become somewhat "Twitter famous" since the video went viral.

With Christmas right around the corner, who knew that Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer would have such relevance.
