49ers WR Lavelle Hawkins bounces off defenders en route to amazing TD (video)

In perhaps the best play to emerge from the mostly football flotsam and jetsam indicative the NFL preseason, San Francisco 49ers wideout Lavelle Hawkins made an amazing individual effort while scoring a touchdown during the 4th quarter of the team’s win over the San Diego Chargers on Thursday.

After tipping a high pass from backup quarterback B.J. Daniels into the air, Hawkins regains the ball, turns and his drilled in the chest by a Chargers defender. Pinballing off that guy, Hawkins sheds a few tackles while reversing course, then cutting back back to the left sideline before outrunning essentially the entire Chargers defensive unit before crossing the end zone.

Phenomenal play.
