Division II Running Back Flips Over Defender, Keeps Running for 10 More Yards and First Down (Video)

You probably have no idea where Lincoln University is. You might take an educated guess and say somewhere in Illinois, but you’d be wrong. It’s in Jefferson City, Missouri, it’s a historically black university, and there are approximately 3,000 undergraduate students.

Sports? Yeah, they play sports. They’re the Lincoln Blue Tigers, and they’re part of the NCAA Division II. They even play football, but they are absolutely horrible. Like, 2-8 horrible.

So why on earth am I talking about these guys? Because of their running back, Martee Tenner. He’s not their starting running back. That would be a kid named Henderson Morris, who rushed for 1,320 yards. Tenner, meanwhile, had just 17 attempts at running the ball all season. However, one of those attempts was absolutely spectacular.

What did Tenner do? Just watch:

That’s right. In Lincoln’s final game of the 2013 season against Southwest Baptist on November 16—a resounding 51-28 victory—Tenner flips over the defender, lands on his feet, and then runs for another ten yards.

You’ve gotta love it. For all I know, this kid may never play football again, but today he’s the star of the internet.

Well done.
