There hasn’t been enough love for high school football highlights on Clones Confidential, so let’s make up for it with an incredible play by one of the highest-touted commitments in Iowa State football history.
Allen Lazard, who’s ranked as Iowa’s best football player in the class of 2014 by 247Sports and is currently a top 10 wide receiver in the nation, committed to the Cyclones last December. He still stands by that decision.
In a football game on Wednesday night against Ankeny, Lazard picked up a 59-yard touchdown pass to put Urbandale up 21-0 in the waning seconds of the first quarter. The video makes the play look much better than any box score could.
Lazard made the one-handed catch look routine and his defender had no chance once the receiver turned on the jets into the endzone. You have to feel bad for his defender a little bit; even when he goes for a tackle near the goal line, he completely whiffs because Lazard has the speed of a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
