Bear briefly interrupts Tennessee high school's football practice

A Tennessee high school's football practice was briefly interrupted when a bear streaked across the field. The practice was delayed for about 15 minutes.

A Tennessee high school was about to take the field for a joint practice session on Monday when a wild bear ran onto the field and caused a brief delay.

Gatlinburg-Pittman High School football coach Brad Waggoner posted a video onto his X account. The bear streaked across the field possibly trying out for the school’s running back position.

"Just another day in The Smoky Mountains," Waggoner wrote.

Practice commenced after about 15 minutes. There were no injuries reported due to the bear.

University of Central Arkansas broadcaster Steve Owens was among those to react to the viral clip.

"This! This right here from Gatlinburg HS today is what I’m envisioning for @UCA_Football some day! Go find us an Arkansas black bear from the Ozarks & run him on The Stripes when the Bears take the field just like Ralphie at Colorado!" Owens wrote on X.

The Highlanders played in the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association.

The high school’s season begins on Friday against Seymour High School at home. Their year will end on Oct. 26.
