Rivals -Wilder is the son of former NFL star running back James Wilder. But no, we can’t recall Wilder – or any other NFL player – doing this. On the way to the end zone, Wilder knocks over three defenders simultaneously, as if they were bowling pins. He gets turned around, but that doesn’t matter, he spins out of it and works his way down the field for the score. And let’s be clear, this was a top-notch defense from as good a high school football state as there is. The play came last weekend in the Florida 5A state final against Manatee, the team that shut down the seemingly unstoppable and defending national champion St. Thomas Aquinas the week before.
Nice run. Looks like me in Pop Warner.
