Madden or real life? Chris Evans talks about his crazy leap against Maryland

Evans has HOPS

NCAA Football: Minnesota at Michigan Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Evans had a solid game in Michigan’s 35-10 win over Maryland, rushing for 80 yards and 2 touchdowns. One of his 15 totes was a memorable one, leaping over the Maryland defender fluidly and in a manner that looked effortless.

After the game Evans said in the attempt he “tried to size him up and just go for it.” Go for it he did, and he nailed the landing too.

For any fan of the NFL video game Madden, you know clicking Y or Triangle will allow you to mimic this Evans play. “It felt like I was in a video game or something.” Evans said. Well played Chris, well played.
