Plenty of high school football players try to get on the radar of college scouts by making their own highlight videos.

But there is only one Ryan Potter.

The senior cornerback/kicker at Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, Tenn. put together some of his best highlights from the 2012 season and posted a video on YouTube. The description of the video is quite simple: "football." The video begins with a short bio and a message saying, "Get Your Popcorn Ready... The Show's Startin."

The video shows off Potter's performances on kickoffs, which is mostly footage of him running down the field getting blocked and sometimes not even making contact with another player. The video also features him kicking a bunch of extra points. So, if you're a college scouts in need of a backup kicker or eager special teamer with a sense of humor then look no further.

The video has been going viral. Deadspin called Potter its "new favorite high school athlete." CBS Sports called it the "greatest recruiting highlight tape of all time." And SB Nation proclaimed "we are all Ryan Potter."
