While Duke Ihenacho may not be Greg Jennings, he certainly put the San Jose State Spartans on his back and led them to a 28-27 victory over Hawaii Warriors.
After turning the ball over on the first four possessions of the second half and looking as terrible as a team possibly could, San Jose State was down 27-20 when this play happened.
Hawaii’s Joey Iosefa had just scored a 32 yard rushing touchdown and the Warriors were about to kick the extra point when the Spartans blocked the kick and Ihenacho recovered it.
The speedy Ihenacho took off for the long two points a team receives for scoring on a blocked extra point, but there was a problem.
While pulling away from the Warriors, Ihenacho pulls up lame with a cramp in his left hamstring but runs through the pain and gets his team the two points that untimely put them over the edge.
This amazing runback was eerily familiar to another amazing touchdown we have seen before, but in this case, the stakes were very real.
Ihenacho really did put the team on his back, and it was his will and determination to get to the end zone that helped his team win.
They need to make a video of this play with the guy who did the Jennings and Marshawn Lynch videos; that would be too funny!
Get off me, child's play!
