WATCH: Texas HS Running Back Ta'Zhawn Henry Hurdles Two Defenders


Ta'Zhawn Henry had the high school football play of the year Saturday night. The 5’6″ running back from Lamar High School in Houston, Texas ran a sweep to the right and hurdled not one, but two defenders on his way to the end zone.

Watch carefully:

" That was a five yard hurdle… — FunnyPicsDepot?? (@FunnyPicsDepot) November 6, 2016 "

That is one of the most ridiculous plays I’ve ever seen at the high school level. He actually hurdled a full five yards in the air.

Here’s another angle:

" Vote for the @abc13houston HS Play of the Week at @BobSlovak13 @LamarTexansFB @spxfootball @KLEINOAKFB @Brandon_Blair5 @grantgunnell5 — Bob Slovak (@BobSlovak13) November 7, 2016 "

That’s just absurd.

Even Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was impressed:

The diminutive Henry is the 10th-ranked all-purpose back in the 2018 high school class on the 247 composite. After that highlight I’m sure he’s going to get noticed a bit more.
