Pulling down an interception is an accomplishment for any high school football player, particularly in a state that features top competition like South Carolina. Returning that interception for a touchdown is an even more memorable event.
Returning two interceptions for touchdowns on back-to-back plays? Now that's something you don't see everyday.
Remarkably, that's precisely what Columbia (S.C.) A.C. Flora High cornerback Rion Davis accomplished in his squad's 48-20 win against area rival Columbia (S.C.) High.
As you can see in the video above, Davis' first pick-six came on a play where he simply got a better read on the ball than the receivers he was charged to cover. He ripped the ball away and danced into the end zone.
Just moments later, Davis was in the exact same spot, giving Flora fans a sense of déjà vu. This time, Davis had jumped the route and then trotted toward the end zone, despite the unintentional interference of a back judge.
Both interceptions were fairly routine, but they had an enormous impact on the game. When Davis pulled down his first interception, Flora was hanging on to a 34-20 lead, with Columbia obviously possessing the ball. If Columbia had found a way to reach the end zone, the game would suddenly have been a one-possession contest with half of the fourth period to play.
Instead, Davis made sure the ball — and the game — went the other way. And he did it twice. That's something that he and Flora fans are unlikely to forget anytime soon.
