There are car wrecks and then there’s the wreck Ravenwood (TN) 3-star cornerback Myles Pollard unloaded on an IMG Academy receiver Friday night on ESPNU. I’ve watched this one at least a dozen times and all I can think is that Roger Goodell has already filed Pollard’s name away in the back of his commissioner brain for future use if needed.
While Pollard (6’2, 185 lbs.) has a highlight reel hit in HD thanks to ESPN, Ravenwood was lit up on the scoreboard suffering a 45-14 loss to the No. 1 high school team in the country.
Lead with the shoulder, drive the receiver’s mouthpiece into orbit. It’s a catch, but Pollard is about to shoot up some recruiting boards off this single hit.

What’s more impressive – the hit or that he somehow held onto the ball? 👀🤷♂️
