If the Laurier Golden Hawks need a playmaker, head coach Michael Faulds might have uncovered a gem.

Alex, a special needs fan, attended Laurier’s training camp practice on Sunday and juked a defender out of his cleats.

The entire Golden Hawks squad went wild after Alex busted a move in the open field and the video went viral.

ESPN’s Twitter account – with 34.2 million followers – shared the film on their feed among other major media outlets such as TSN.

It’s a move worthy of sports hilite shows and a roster spot.
