This Punt Return Looks Like Something Out of a Video Game

Lakeside high school running back Desmond Richards makes defenders look silly during this touchdown punt return.

This is either some really great return skills by the high school football player, or horrific special teams coverage from the other team. It's probably a little of both.

In a game between Lakeside High School in Eufaula, Al. and Coosa Valley Academy, Lakeside running back Desmon Richards looks like a human highlight reel. He catches a punt that bounces off the ground, then as he somehow avoids four tackles before changing directions and returning for a touchdown.

Desmon Richards' Punt Return

Per his Hudl account, Richards runs a 4.49 40-yard dash. Unfortunately this fantastic touchdown was called back thanks to a block in the back per the Dothan Eagle. It was a touchdown in our books, Richards.
