Marky Thompkins, quarterback of Ohio's East Liverpool high school, scored a near-touchdown on an incredible run up the middle during his team's 28-21 victory over Struthers last Friday. Thompkins took the snap and ran out of the pocket to his left. When he saw a hole, he bolted up the middle and hurdled over a defender and ran into the end zone. The play drew a penalty because according to local rules, it is illegal to jump over a player who has one or two feet on the ground. While the touchdown was called back, the play was still quite impressive. Scroll down to see.
