High School Player Returns Interception 107 Yards For Touchdown

This is from Friday night and, yes, a 107-yard interception return means the Maryland-bound Johnny Thomas was seven yards deep in the end zone when opted to run it back rather than take a knee. Several amazing things have to happen for that to turn into a 107-yard touchdown.


First, Thomas says he thought he was on the one-yard line. Which, even though that yellow line in the middle of the end zone is confusing, yikes. Second, he is almost tackled inside the two-yard line three times and somehow jukes away. Third, missed tackles galore and, finally, (as always) there is an awesome block that frees him up at the 25-yard line.

Thomas also had 228 yards rushing on 27 carries in the game.
