Ottawa Redblacks’ return man Devonte Dedmon is going viral.

Dedmon recorded two return touchdowns on Friday night, the second of which was particularly sensational.

The video was posted early this afternoon and took just two hours to reach 175,000 views. @Sportscenter is the most-followed sports-related account on twitter with over 35 million followers.

Dedmon has played just three CFL games, recording 29 returns for an average of 24.1 yards and two scores. His performance on Friday carried the Redblacks to a 30-27 overtime victory over the Montreal Alouettes.

The 23-year-old played his college football at William & Mary, the same school attended by CFL legend Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons.
