VIDEO: Live Golf Interview Turns Awkward When Female Reporter Mistakes Man For Former NFL QB Vince Young, And You Won’t Believe How He Handled It

A reporter on the Golf Channel thought she was interviewing former NFL quarterback Vince Young at the BMW Charity Pro-Am golf tournament. Unfortunately, she had the wrong person.

Vince Young is one of several celebrities participating at this year’s BMW Charity Pro-Am tournament that kicked off today. The event runs through Sunday and is being held at the Thornblade Club in Greer, South Carolina and Spartanburg’s Carolina Country Club.

Golf reporter interviews Everette Sands thinking he's Vince Young.

During the broadcast, the TV cameras cut to a reporter interviewing a participant that she thought was Young. After referencing Young’s NFL career, the man awkwardly stated that she had the wrong person, revealing that he’s football coach Everette Sands:

Despite being put in such an awkward position, Sands couldn’t have played that any better. And he even joked about it afterwards on Twitter:

Sands is an offensive skill specialist for the Citadel Bulldogs’ football program. He was a star running back at the school back in the 1990s and graduated in ’93, so the age difference is obviously a considerable gap from Vince Young (41 years of age).

The Texas Longhorns legend led the school to a thrilling 2006 Rose Bowl victory over the powerhouse USC Trojans in what is regarded as one of the greatest college football contests ever. Young ran for the game-winning touchdown on a 4th-and-3 play with just 19 seconds left.

Vince Young Didn’t Quite Cut It At The NFL Level

The Tennessee Titans used the No. 3 pick of the 2006 NFL Draft on Young, hoping he would emerge as the new franchise star in Music City.

Young had some success, winning 2006 Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. The two-time Pro Bowler led Tennessee to a wild card berth in his sophomore 2007 season, but they ultimately lost to Philip Rivers’ San Diego Chargers.

For his career, the 6-foot-5 dual-threat quarterback had a mere 57.9 completion percentage for 8,964 passing yards, 46 touchdowns and a whopping 51 interceptions. He never tossed more than 12 touchdowns in a single season.
