LSU freshman defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao “cut his arm to the bone” when he punched a glass window outside the team’s weight room on Monday, but thankfully won’t require amputation.

On Tuesday morning. Lealaimatafao sent out a tweet with some more good news:

According to The New Orleans Times-Picayune, the 17-year-old Lealaimatafao punched the window after becoming upset with his girlfriend.

The 6-foot, 300-pound native of San Antonio was rated by Rivals as a three-star member of LSU’s 2014 recruiting class, the 26th-best defensive tackle and 43rd-best player in Texas.

    Why is the solution to everything is to punch something? If you’re going to punch something at least punch something that can’t kill you. Or better yet, deal with it and walk away.

    Because elite athletes aren’t taught to deal with aggression. They are taught to channel it and use it.

    The window he punched was in the weight room. He could have channeled that anger into some lifting…Hope this prooves to be a valuable lesson
