(Video) High School Kick Returner Drags Two Would-Be Tacklers 15 Yards Into End Zone

Not too shabby, Deonte Wilson. During a spectacular 99-yard kick return for a touchdown, the senior from Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland High not only evades what appears to be great coverage by the special teams players from Palm Bay at the onset of the return (although he was ultimately sprung by some timely blocks), he proceeds to drag a couple of opponents the last 15 yards into the end zone for an incredible display of speed, agility and power which came together for one of the best plays out of high school football this season, joining North Haven (Conn.) QB Jalon White’s nifty desperation touchdown pass in September.

Wilson’s touchdown scamper-turned-power drag proved to be a critical play in the game, as Mainland beat Palm Bay by a score of 13-0.
