College Football Player Runs 58 Yards in Wrong Direction After Fumble Recovery
Week one of college football is underway, and it only took Kent State linebacker Andre Parker about eighteen seconds to become a household name for this epic blunder.
Kent State was on the road playing Towson. After Towson return man Derrick Joseph accidentally touched the punt, the ball ended up in the hands of Parker who was only six yards away from pay dirt.
Instead of scooping and scoring, Andre decided to go the opposite direction towards his own end-zone thinking that was the path he needed to take for the score. It wasn’t.
Andre got his name etched in blooper history next to Roy Reagles and Jim Marshall for his wrong way run.
