The Old College Squeeze

I was watching an extended segment of a football game where a man in a dark uniform had been tackled in something of a flying manner by a man in a white uniform. He he was laying face down on the field, and the referees realized he wasn't getting up. Some players helped him onto a stretcher, and a shot in the stands showed his wife or girlfriend crying.
There was an interview with the man who did the tackle.
player: "I didn't kill him did I? I just tackled him using the college squeeze."
He made an indication just over the number on his shirt to show where he had grabbed the guy in the tackle.
Note I know nothing about football, nor do I ever watch it. Squeeze play is apparently an informal term coming from baseball, as concentrating one's power on a particular goal, kind of like "long shot". But the 'college squeeze' is not a common term.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
