You can forgive Jalin Buie for being excited; he’d just scored a touchdown in a state title game and he could feel that a third-straight crown for his Jacksonville Trinity Chistian football team was within reach. The only way to get rid of that extra energy in the moment was to do what he does best, showing off his absurd athleticism for all to see.
Buie celebrated his ankle-breaking, 20-yard touchdown gallop by transitioning smoothly into a picture perfect front flip as captured in this Hudl video. He earned a flag for his little bit of flair, but something tells us he’s perfectly ok with that.
Given Trinity Christian’s 30-3 victory, his team was probably willing to overlook his brief indiscretion of exuberance as well. After all, he landed the kind of front flip that most gymnasts just dream of.
Buie has yet to make a pledge for his college future, though he does hold scholarship offers from the likes of Arizona, Georgia, Auburn, and UCLA, among others. With athleticism like that, it’s no wonder he’s in high demand.
