She got the shot. 

Chamberlain Smith, a photographer for the University of Georgia athletic department, was injured during the Bulldogs’ game against Auburn on Saturday in a collision with Georgia running back Brian Herrien. 

Smith was knocked unconscious and suffered a concussion and a bruised eye, but she did manage to snap a photo of Herrien moments before impact. 

“YOU’RE THE BEST,” Herrien tweeted in response to the photo. “I knew it would be a good picture.”

Smith was taken off the field on a cart and transported to a hospital to be treated for her injuries. She was released Sunday night and has spent the past several days recuperating at her parents’ house in northwest Georgia.
