How about a DK Metcalf-type chase and tackle after a turnover but on the high school level?

USC recruit Keyan Burnett saw Damien’s Gio Russo heading in the other direction Friday after picking up a fumble and he re-enacted the play the Seattle Seahawks’ star made during the 2020 NFL season.

Russo scooped up a Noah Fifita fumble at the 11-yard line and looked set to turn a 13-0 deficit against Servite into a 13-6 ballgame after an 89-yard return.

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound Burnett, a 4-star recruit who committed to play for the Trojans earlier this month, started in the end zone and ran down the Russo before the other goal line.
