Watch This High School Quarterback Hurdle A Standing Defender (Update)

Watch in awe as Marky Thompkins of the East Liverpool (Ohio) Potters shows off his ridiculous athleticism by jumping clear over a defender to get into the end zone. H/T Nic.

Update: It's necessary to add that the play was called back. According to, in Ohio high school football, "hurdling a player who has a one or two feet on the ground is a penalty." Damn you, Injury Concerns.
