In the first quarter of Auburn’s game against Arkansas, Tigers quarterback Jeremy Johnson hit wide receiver Melvin Ray near the sideline. Ray broke a tackle and at that point, no one was going to catch him, as he sprinted for a 49-yard touchdown. Well, maybe no one was going to catch him, but an Auburn ball boy did a remarkably impressive job keeping up with Ray down the sideline.

That kid has some jets! He did have a bit of a head start, but then again, he’s a ball boy, while Ray is an SEC wide receiver. Never let it be said that Auburn does not have a surplus of talent.
