HS punt returner makes amazing run after massive first hit

Tuesday September 30th, 2014

Austin Fay's coaches at Glenwood High in Chatham, Ill., probably would have preferred a fair catch on the punt in this video.

Despite narrowly surviving a massive hit as soon as he touches the ball, Fay perseveres and turns the kick into a massive gain for the Titans, managing to shake off just about every defender on the field before being tackled just shy of the goal line.

Granted the kicking team does not exactly use textbook tackling form, but Fay still takes some huge hits head on and maintains his balance to get Glenwood some prime field position.
