VIDEO: What a run! New Jersey prep football player makes everyone miss on 85-yard TD jaunt

By

The jet sweep can go awry for an offense right away if it does not get blocked up properly.

Or, it can go awry if you don’t have an athlete like Eastside (Paterson, N.J.) High School senior Ramir Tann-Davis taking the hand-off.

Watch the above video, as Tann-Davis (who also plays tailback) comes in motion from the slot, then receives the inside hand-off. Immediately upon getting the ball, he makes a Hackensack High School defender miss in the backfield. The hard cuts to the inside become a pattern, as Tann-Davis avoids somewhere in the ballpark of eight tacklers before racing for the 85-yard touchdown run.

Tann-Davis is also Eastside’s most disruptive defensive playmaker, earning the stellar nickname “Sir Picks-a-lot” from The Record.

His work with the ball in his hands, albeit in a 56-13 loss to Hackensack, also must also be applauded.
