It was clearly Hammer time.
Alonzo Carter, the running back coach at San Jose State University, decided to entertain his players with his sweet dance skills.
Carter was the lead dancer and head choreographer for MC Hammer in the 1990s. He starred in many of the multiplatinum-selling hip-hop artist’s videos and went on tour with him, per the East Bay Express.
On Saturday, during a spring practice, Carter busted out his old dance moves to MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” — and the man has still got it.
Carter told KPIX, a CBS affiliate in the San Francisco and Bay area, in the video above that some of his fellow coaches knew about his past and wanted to share it with the team, and they kind of set him up by playing the 1990 hit while at practice.
According to the Express, it took Carter a long time to be taken seriously as a coach after his dance career.
But he worked hard, starting his career as a volunteer coach at his high school in Oakland in 1992. By 2009 he had helped about 80 inner-city players get into college with football scholarships, despite that fact that Carter had dropped out of California State University to pursue his dance career with MC Hammer.
Carter went back to college and graduated in June 2016 in order to coach at the collegiate level.
“I’m living proof that with some focus and faith, you can get things done,” he told KPIX.
He truly is too legit to quit.
