This Punt Return Looks Like Something Out of a Video Game


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.

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.
