Greenwich (Conn.) High may have topped Danbury High, but the Cardinals couldn’t get the best of Elijah Duffy on one of the best touchdown returns this year.
As you can see in the video above, Duffy proved to be extremely elusive during this 86-yard kickoff return, somehow escaping a total of 15 would-be tackles en route to pay dirt. The fact that he did so without completely reversing field only reinforces just how special his moves were.
For Danbury, the touchdown return was a brief bright spot in an otherwise dismal game; the Cardinals routed the Hatters, 57-29. That’s to be expected from the state’s football juggernaut. For one night, no measure of dominance could land Greenwich the game’s most memorable play.
