Devin Hester sets record TD mark
Friday September 19th, 2014

Devin Hester has officially returned kicks and punts better than anyone in NFL history.

The Atlanta Falcons' star broke Deion Sanders' return touchdown record on Monday, beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers punt team and the punter for a 62-yard touchdown. His touchdown gave the Falcons a dominating 35-0 lead over the Buccaneers.

Hester even paid homage to Sanders with his celebration before entering the end zone. He moved his left head behind his head and high-stepped into the end zone, one of Sanders' signature moves as a player.

Hester also rushed for a 20-yard touchdown.

Here's a vine of his high-step:
