He Could Go ALL THE WAY


I love high school football. Well, no, that’s not true, I do LOVE the TV show Friday Night Lights, and that’s ABOUT high school football. (On a side note, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch FNL when it airs on NBC in January, if only so that I may continue watching it, but you’ll love it too I promise.)

Anyhoo. I saw this amazing run by an Oklahoma high school FRESHMAN and it is awfully damn impressive, so I figured I had to share it with y’all. It reminds me of one of my favorite NFL players for some reason…

The player in question, a member of the Heritage Hall high school team has some pretty good gene lines to help him along his football career. That’s because his dad happens to be one of the greatest players in NFL and college history, one Barry Sanders. That’s right, meet Barry Sanders Jr! Looks like the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.

I love this run, he breaks 3 tackles before he even gets to the second level of defenders, and then BOOM, he’s gone, no chance of catching up to him. Oh yeah, that’s 64 yards on a reverse, not too shabby…The defense looks totally over-matched, and Sanders is only a FRESHMAN! Yikes. Look out world. He already, at least for one play, looks like a man amongst boys. Also, maybe I’m wrong but he also seems to be a bit taller and bigger than his totally awesome dad. Here’s hoping for lots and lots more of the young master Sanders’ exploits.

    I’m not huge football fan, but I always loved watching lions games, just to see barry sanders, who was (obviously) unbelievable.

    If this is a glimpse into the future of the NFL, I can not wait. SO MONEY! he certainly made his dad proud on that one…

    I disagree, I think Barry Sanders Sr. would have scored a touchdown, blocked his own extra point, run it back the other way for an intentional safety, then returned the kickoff for another touchdown, blocked his own extra point…etc.

    p.s. he was good at football and this was a high school game.
