    Miss Arizona USA is Tackled With Grace

    Being tackled by a football player during a game is not the best way to start off your day.  Luckily, Miss Arizona USA 2016 Chelsea Myers, handled her’s with grace.

    Arizona Quarterback, Brandon Dawkins, ran into her just off the sidelines, taking her with him.  Chelsea is a physical therapy technician, so she knew a few things about landing safely.  Chelsea walked away with a smile instead of a scratch.  You can watch the moment unfold here.
