During the football game versus the Cholla Chargers, senior Ruben Canastillo broke the record for longest interception return for a touchdown. Ruben intercepted a pass on the 2 yard line and took it 98 yards for the score.
The previous record was held by Charles Quihuis (Bowerman) 1971 & Robert Greene (Bowerman) 1975 both for 90 yards.
Here’s the video:
Ruben was very excited to find he had broken the record. “I just read the quarterbacks eyes and broke on the play,” he said. He received a plaque and his name will be added to the football record books.
Congratulations to Ruben! The question is, how long will this record stand?
