The N.C. State football team’s  defensive coordinator Dave Huxtable and wide receiver coach Frisman Jackson saved a life recently.

The brave duo helped rescue a 16-year-old girl from a car crash July 15 in Raleigh, N.C.

According to ESPN, as the pair drove home they found the car flipped over on the side of the road.

“We both jumped out of our car and ran over to aid the person,” Jackson told ESPN. “We were talking to her on the driver’s side. I went around to the passenger’s side and yanked the door open and me and Coach Huxtable both pulled her out.”

According to Jackson, the girl driving the car was the only occupant, was wearing her seatbelt and wasn’t seriously injured.

“The door was kind of stuck in some mud so I had to go back to my old football weight-lifting, get down in a squat position and use your whole lower half to yank it open,” he said.  “The car was flipped on its hood. It was pretty bad. It was stuck there in the trees and everything. Luckily she had her seatbelt on.”

The driver was not seriously injured in the accident.
