Johnnie Akins, Marquell Saunders a one-two punch for Roosevelt
VideosHigh school football videos
Johnnie Akins remembered being about 6 or 7 years old and watching little Marquell Saunders dance around the field as if it were his stage and the opposing defense was his captive audience.
"It was his birthday," Akins said. "He got the ball and he kept spinning and spinning and spinning. And then he scored."
It was the last play of their PAL game, and Saunders' touchdown was the winner.
