ANDRE PARKER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Video: Kent State player returns punt the wrong way

Holy moly!  Watch as Andre Parker of Kent State returns his own team's punt by running the wrong way in their season opening game against Towson.  In spite of what the announcers say, the kicking team can't advance a muffed punt even if it's backwards towards their own endzone.  Almost as crazy as Parker running the wrong way are the Towson players tackling...

And that’s what happened Thursday night when Kent State’s Andre Parker scooped up a fumble on a punt return and returned it...
