It took a week for this video to hit the internet, but safe to say it will probably be the first ‘did you see’ that play to go viral for the 2017 high school football season.
Check-out Citrus High School (Inverness, Florida) running back Rudolph Holton III scoring a touchdown after having his helmet ripped-off against Leesburg in the Hurricanes’ 27-26 kickoff classic on August 18. HOWEVER, somethings aren’t what they seem.
Holton told USA TODAY Sports on Saturday that he kept going because there was no whistle so he kept running. The play should have been ruled dead when he lost his helmet.
“They didn’t make the decision to call it back until I hit the end zone,” Holton said.
So NO touchdown, but still fun to watch!
