AUBURN, Ala. — Jake Longenecker has become a viral sensation since Saturday. Longenecker is better known as the Auburn ball boy who nearly matched Melvin Ray step-for-step on the receiver's 49-yard first quarter touchdown catch.
The burst of quickness was enough to catch Malzahn's eye.
"That was pretty impressive. I didn't know he could run that way," he said. "We do have our ball boys fly around in practice to spot the ball but that was the first time I really got to see him turn it loose."
Check out the highlight of Longenecker's now well-known run below.
