MaxPreps has found a play that will make former Minnesota Vikings star defensive lineman Jim Marshall remember the most infamous moment of his career.

Over the weekend, there was a kickoff in a high school game.

The returner fumbled the ball into the hands of a defender, who took off … in the wrong direction.

Proudly headed down the field no one caught up to him — with good reason.

Of course, the play evokes memories of Marshall’s wrong-way run with the Vikings in 1964. Oct. 25, 1964, to be exact. Nearly 51 years ago to the day.
