When college football quarterback Lemar Johnson sees an opening, he takes it — even if the opening is 5 feet above the ground.
The Morrisville State senior found himself with limited passing options in a play during his school's game against Kean University in Morrisville, New York, on Saturday, so when he saw an opportunity to run the ball, he did.
A defender confronted Johnson just in front of the goal line, and the quarterback did exactly what many of us wish we could do: He leaped 5 feet in the air...
...hurdling over the defensive player...
...and diving safely into the end zone.
Here's how Morrisville State's athletics website described the play:
Facing a fourth down and four situation on the Kean 22-yard line, Morrisville State opted to take a chance at gaining the first down, and on the play, Johnson scrambled and after a 5+ foot hurdle in the air over the Cougar safety, landed in the end zone for the most thrilling and mouth dropping score of the afternoon.
Watch the amazing play below:
Morrisville State went on to win the game, 37-31.
