The high school quarterback dating the cheerleader is an American tradition. Maybe it shouldn't be.

Check out this hilarious video of a high school cheerleader in Tennessee grabbing the facemask of an opposing player after a playoff game.

Let's fill you in on the background, shall we? The QB is Dylan Hopkins, whose Maryville team dusted off Oakland. The cheerleader is his girlfriend -- who just so happens to go to Oakland. So, yeah, maybe she was a little peeved that her school lost, but also giddy that her boyfriend won. Who knows? Teenagers are often a cluster of conflicted emotions.

Whatever harsh words she had for Hopkins quickly faded because the couple took a picture later showing they looked pretty darned happy.
