Watch: XFL punter turns fake punt into wild 84-yard TD pass

While the Orlando Guardians aren’t having the best season in the XFL, they sure do have a punter who can chuck it.

During Saturday’s road game against the St. Louis Battlehawks, the 1-8 Guardians took a lead on a perfectly executed fake punt.

To start, Orlando punter Mac Brown, formerly of Ole Miss, threw an absurd pass to former Houston Texans tight end Jordan Thomas on 4th and 21 from the Guardians’ side of the field.

Thomas snagged the ball and stormed to the end zone to give the Guardians an advantage over the Battlehawks during the game’s second quarter. The entire touchdown play would go for 84 yards.

The touchdown pass is Brown’s second in two games on a fake punt formation, which could be a hint to NFL teams that he’d be quite an addition to any special teams unit.

Thomas also deserved a ton of credit for hauling in the pass and making such an impressive scramble to the end zone.

Hey, maybe NFL scouts will watch this play and give both Brown and Thomas chances in training camp. Put those two together, and maybe you’ll strike gold on any fake punt formation.
