U.S. college football coaches might want to make sure their passports are current in a few years. A Canadian high school player is gaining notice for running over nearly an entire defense in one play.
Jaeden Washington, a member of the junior team (ninth and 10th-graders) at St. Michael's College School in Toronto, apparently posted his highlight-reel run on YouTube Oct. 4. Can you blame him for wanting to show off?
Watch above as Washington lowers his shoulder and pummels the St. Andrew's College defense on a 50-yard touchdown run during a Sept. 21 game.
While other outlets might have exaggerated the tally of broken tackles on the play, it's still a heckuva lot.
Washington's team won the game, 53-2, and remains undefeated.
No stats were available for Washington on the school's website, but the St. Michael's president and principal, Terence Sheridan, told The Huffington Post that "he's a very strong player."
"That's the way the cookie crumbles," a voice commenting on the video says after Washington's stellar play.
Well, it is the way the defense crumbles.
