HS Player Hurdles an Opponent, Then Another One, During TD Run (Video)
I bet if Bryan Gilbert played Madden, he’d use the hurdle feature a lot. Like, every play.
Here he is, in the backfield for Fairmount (WV), when the HS player gets pitched the ball on opponent North Marion’s 30-yard line. After breaking past the line of scrimmage, he clears a waiting tackler by jumping right over him. Then, after finding some daylight, does the same thing about 15 feet from the end zone.
I’m sure a track coach saw this clip and started salivating.
WE FOUND OUR NEW HURDLER!
(Here’s the clip.)
The second angle seems almost more impressive, and this kid CAN jump, but constantly jumping over people is a risky proposition.
