Woodrow football player reflects on his viral worthy ‘punt return for the ages’


It’s what USA Today called “a punt return for the ages,” and Woodrow Wilson High School senior Justin Cain still can’t believe he’s the player responsible.

Woodrow Wilson was down 7-0 in its game against Kimball High School last week when Cain, a wide receiver, fielded a punt. After initially dropping the football when a Kimball player hit him, Cain recovered the ball, pulled off a number of impressive moves, and, with the help of teammates, seemingly ran through the entire opposing team to score a touchdown. Watch the above to see the play for yourself.

“I watch the video and think, wow, how did that happen?” he said with a laugh. “You can’t practice that.”

Woodrow went on to win the game 42-13. Woodrow plays South Garland High School on Friday. Go here to see the full Dallas ISD varsity football schedule.
