Christian Blank, a 15-year-old freshman wide receiver, connected with QB John Timonire for a 61-yard touchdown on Saturday at SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio. 

But along the way, he picked up and carried a defender 5 yards with him into the end zone. 

“I remember catching the ball and seeing the guy and thinking I’m going to score and nothing is going to stop me,” Blank told newsnet5.com's Tim Rearden.

The incredible play still wasn't enough to hold off Lutheran East, as the Fighting Heralds fell to the Falcons 38-14.

Though the team lost, it didn't stop coaches from praising Blank's effort in the film room (where the video in the player above was shot). 

"They said they'd never seen anything like that before," Blank said.

St. John High School is the alma mater of Ohio State University's head coach Urban Meyer. 

If Blank keeps it up, he may be receiving a call from the Buckeyes' mastermind in the future.
