Football Player Executes Perfect Flip Over Defender

Lincoln University (Mo.) running back Martee Tenner gave fans the ultimate highlight: a front flip over a defender. Watch the jaw-dropping play at STACK.com.

Like all ball carriers, Martee Tenner was looking to avoid a tackle. However, his method was anything but ordinary. Leaving stiff arms, jukes and spin moves to the less creative, the Lincoln University (Mo.) running back decided to go with a full-on flip over the defender. And it worked. Tenner landed on his feet and gained another chunk of valuable yards. He now leads the nation in YAF (yards after flipping).

The senior running back's first down (and 9.88 score from the East German judge) helped Lincoln claim a 51-28 win over Southwest Baptist.

Watch Tenner's acrobatic move in the above video. Oh, and don't try this at home.
