When football teams line up in their goal-line offense and are looking to score from about one or two yards out, a running back can attempt to jump over the pile. Oftentimes the flight results in a score while other times it causes pain and/or fumbling. There are also times when running backs and wide receivers leap into the end zone just to show off on their way to a score. Kimlon Dillon from Apopka, Fla. topped all of them when he jumped into the end zone from five yards out and scored a touchdown. Check out this awesome video that Prep Rally shared with us:
I don’t know what’s more impressive: Dillon’s leap or this flip into the end zone we showed you a couple weeks back. The thing that impresses me most about this touchdown is if you watch closely the jump was necessary. Kimlon wasn’t simply showcasing his freak athleticism — he was avoiding defenders along the way. In any event, the bar for jumping into the end zone to score a touchdown has been raised.
