Henrietta, N.Y. – Another unbelievable sports moment in the Rochester area has gone viral.
It might not bring the goosebumps that Jason “J-Mac” McElwain’s performance in 2006 did, but 8-year-old Jayden Scott has drawn hundreds of thousands of hits for his amazing moment.
Scott, who plays for the Rush-Henrietta Jr. Royal Comets C team, zigzagged across the field, breaking several tackles, en route to a 45-yard touchdown run against the Hilton Raiders Sept. 16.
The video of Scott’s run has nearly 500,000 views on YouTube as of Saturday night.
“It was just so exciting because he was just literally busting through those tackles,” Jayden’s mother, Regina, said. “When he got through, he was running and then, ‘Touchdown,’ and I was so excited. It was too funny.”
“When he hit the touchdown, they were screaming from both sides,” Jayden’s father, Reggie, said. “You would have thought he played for Hilton that day because everybody was, like, shocked that he broke all those tackles.”
Rush-Henrietta won the game, 33-26.
