VIDEO: Backward punt turns into easiest touchdown ever

By

Jackson Gleeson from Mansfield High in Texas scored the easiest touchdown he’ll ever get on a 19-yard punt return.

A shanked punt and the backspin on the ball led to a minus-16 yard punt for DeSoto.

Gleeson scooped it up and walked into the end zone untouched in Mansfield’s 35-21 victory. There is some question, as raised by the Dallas Morning News, whether Gleeson had stepped out of bounds and therefore would have been ineligible to be the first player to touch the ball when he returned inbounds.

Regardless, this was a strange one.
