Star football recruit’s mom walks out after son picks Florida over Bama, Tennessee

BREAKING  NEWS: GWOC to split - 10 teams to form separate league

On one of the biggest days of his life, Jacob Copeland, one of the top wide receiver recruits in college football, picked Florida as his school of choice, angering his mother, who walked out of the signing ceremony live on television.

Copeland, a Florida native, was dressed in red and announced the Gators were his team. His mom, wearing an Alabama sweatshirt and Tennessee hat promptly left the table and walked off as students cheered Copeland’s signing.

This wasn’t the first time a mom had issues with where their son chose to play football. Landon Collins earned the ire of her mom for picking Alabama over her favorite LSU. 

Mom was angry again two years later when little brother Gerald Willis picked Florida.
