Florida (Tallahassee, Fla.) High senior running back Kevin Sawyer did it all Friday night, scoring four touchdowns in his team’s 35-21 victory over Blountstown (Fla.).
In particular, though, it was the touchdown above (and, from another angle, at the 0:20 mark below) that makes you go “How did he stay up?”
And the Blountstown defensive back had to be thinking, “Wait, he’s not down?”
You know it was a good day for Sawyer when the lead-off highlight above – his 100-yard interception return for a touchdown – wasn’t his most notable highlight of the night.
That honor belongs to the intermediate pass from quarterback Bryson Hill that Sawyer turned into an improbable 84-yard touchdown. No whistle? No problem. That score and the extra point put Florida up 21-14 in the second quarter en route to the win.
For Sawyer, it ended up being a balanced night, thanks in large part to an amazing balancing act.
