Incredible punt block return for TD is more of a punt interception

Prep Rally

If you look at the box score for the 77-0 rout posted by Monrovia High (Monrovia, Calif.) against La Canada High (La Canada, Calif.), Monrovia defensive back Darius McClain was credited with a blocked punt return for a touchdown. That’s not really fair; his TD was more of a punt interception.

As you can see int he remarkable video above, McClain caught a punt direct off the foot of La Canada’s punter before it even took full flight, then cruised into the end zone like it was no big deal before celebrating wildly with his teammates. It is undoubtedly the most impressive punt block touchdown of the season.

While the return is buried as a 7-yard touchdown return in official stats, it will surely always stand out with Monrovia fans, who are enjoying an impressive 7-1 season. It also set the standard for Monrovia’s one-sided victory early in the first quarter.
