Hailing from the Show-me State, Springfield (Missouri) Glendale High School running back Trevor Vaughn has certainly shown the nation his ability to turn kickoffs into touchdowns.
In Glendale’s season-opening 50-37 home victory over Joplin (Missouri) High School on September 9, the 5-foot-9, 170-pound senior returned three kickoffs for touchdowns. He accomplished that feat on returns of 93, 92 and 68 yards.
In the process, not only did he set the new Missouri single-game state record, he also tied the national record of three kickoff returns for scores. According to National Federation of State High School Association’s National High School Sports Record Book, five other players had previously performed that feat.
Glendale also received four touchdowns from 6-4, 210-pound senior wide receiver Cameron Johnson, who scored three touchdowns through receptions and one on an interception return.
