The back-to-back sacks were certainly impressive, but perhaps the most entertaining part of the game occurred in between those two QB takedowns.
Following the first one, Douzable did a dance that few have ever seen before, called the “Chopper City Jerk.” (See the video above.)
“It’s a Florida dance,” the UCF alum told me. “We played really hard throughout the game, and I just wanted to have a little fun.”

“We knew we only had two games left, that the playoffs are out of the question. But this group of guys is going to fight hard every week and we wanted to play for each other and play for Rex, and that’s exactly what we did.”
