High school football player does insane flip in scrimmage (video)

Normally, I don’t expect many exciting things to come from a high school football scrimmage but one high school running back decided to make his scrimmage noteworthy with the below video.

As the team in blue runs a pitch play, the tailback breaks one tackle and starts up the field. It appears that a linebacker from the team in gold and white is going to end the run with a tackle.

However, the running back sees it coming and does an incredible front flip that hurdles the defender:

For those of you who know anything about physics, the flip itself was 540 degrees.

UPDATE: The video was shot as part of an AT&T commercial….so it’s kinda fake
