@Deadspin just tweeted out a link with the descriptor “High School Running Back Believes He Can Fly.” I was already preparing a clever retort about how R. Kelly believed the same thing (and we know how that turned out!), but then I saw the video.
And holy sweet mercy the kid pretty much can fly.
Just watch the video. It’s one of the most absurdly spectacular touchdowns I’ve ever seen.
I remember watching an old video of Michael Jordan back in the day, and he was discussing whether he could actually fly or not. He said that for that split second when he was at the peak of his glide, he thought it was indeed flying.
It’s hard to watch that video of Dillon and not admit that, for at least a split second, he is literally flying towards the end zone.
By the way, if you wondering, Dillon is a 3-Star recruit and his official position isn’t even running back. It’s safety. Regardless, he has an offer from Indiana, where they don’t have a whole lot of football history, but they do have some pretty good safeties (Mike Dumas) and running backs in their past (Anthony Thompson, Vaughn Dunbar).
Hey, a Hoosier alum can dream, can’t he?
