Remember when you were younger and your mother told you not to run with scissors? Well, Virginia Tech wide receiver Dyrell Roberts decided to break that rule when he found a pair of scissors on the field during a game against North Carolina.

The incident happened in the second quarter as the Hokies faced a 1st and 10 at their own 46 yard line. Roberts was motioning during a shotgun play but stops right in his tracks when he sees the pair of scissors.

For a few seconds, Roberts motions at the Virginia Tech side holding the scissors up until the officials stopped play and then ran with them towards the sidelines:

The Hokies would lose to North Carolina by the score of 48-34 but Roberts might have saved someone on the field from getting seriously injured.

    Somewhere after she saw her son do this, Dyrell Roberts mother was screaming “Oh great. Next thing I know he’ll be swimming after he eats, swallowing his bubblegum and sitting so close to the tv that he’ll go blind”.

      Yeah, I was thinking she probably gave him a time-out when he got home.
