A term describing a situation encountered in the sport of American Football, referring to one player being tackled/blocked in the side of the head without previous knowledge or warning of impact. It is referred to as "getting ear holed" because the ear hole on a football helmet is usually a devastating blind spot. Getting Ear Holed can often cause concussions.
Ethan was watching the safety approaching on his left, but the outside linebacker totally ear holed him from the right.
