WATCH: Shepherd football scores big man touchdown on Senior Day
Senior Lavonte Hights is an All-America offensive lineman for the No. 2-ranked Shepherd Rams. This past Saturday, on Senior Day, he played the role of running back.
Shepherd had the game in hand, leading 42-12 late in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Connor Jessop -- who had already thrown four touchdowns on the day -- rolled out to his right. When he looked back across the field, his reliable big man was standing wide open.
The toss was behind the line of scrimmage, so Hights was credited with a rushing touchdown. It certainly was exciting to see the senior quarterback -- who should find his name amongst Harlon Hill candidates -- reward his All-American. The 6-foot-4, 300 pound lineman took care of the rest.
