Twitter reacts to Miami RB Mark Walton hurdling over Duke defender

Miami running back Mark Walton

Well look here! Apparently Saquon Barkley isn’t the only college football running back who has Olympic level hurdling skills. Miami’s Mark Walton wowed fans Friday night as the Hurricanes took on Duke, gaining 39 yards thanks to a ridiculous hurdle over a Blue Devils defender that had our jaws on the ground.

Naturally, this insane display of athleticism had social media aflame. These are some of the best responses we saw on Twitter.





This huge play set up the game’s first touchdown. Two plays later, Malik Rosier hit Braxton Berrios in the back of the end zone for a 27-yard touchdown strike to give the Hurricanes an early 7-0 lead over the Blue Devils.
