Desmond Richards of Lakeside High School has a legitimate shot to win an ESPY for Play of the Year.

The high school football player fielded a punt return on Thursday night and appeared to be hemmed in for an easy stop on the sideline when the young man embarked on a series of moves that left his opponents grasping at air.

Here is the video of Richards’ epic journey to the end zone.

I’ve watched this more than a few times, and I’m convinced Richards was wearing some kind of magnetic jacket that repelled every defender away from him. There’s really no other explanation for how nobody could tackle him.

Regardless of how he did it, the young man deserves to garner national fame at least for a few days after his remarkable return.
