Best in the league! School football star, 7, shoots to internet fame after scoring epic touchdown...


A video of a seven-year-old American football player has swept the internet after he used knocked off five opponents before scoring an epic touchdown.  

Choyce Brown busted loose on the field in McCalla, Alabama, last weekend. 

The video was captured by a family friend, Jay Johnson, who was watching some United Youth Football Of Alabama playoff games.

Playing for the Hueytown Jaguars, Brown bust loose, leaving opposing defenders strewn all over the field as he rushes for the end zone to get some points on the board for his team.

Brown appears to slow down and shift his direction to show some trickery against some of the opposition players — rather than just scoring a basic touchdown.

He can be seen shoving five out of the way, with the third player sent down seen making a valiant - but ultimately unsuccessful - attempt to push back.  

NFL rules allow players to make contact their arms when less than five years away from rivals - with the video sparking anger among those who say that rule should be banned.  

A highlight video of the touchdown shared by ESPN's Facebook and Twitter profiles has more than five million views — and another 3.2 million from the original source of the video, published on Twitter.
