Young Jesse Pallas Dominates on 50-Yard TD at New York Jets Green & White Scrimmage (Video)

Young Jesse Pallas, diagnosed with leukemia in 2011, dominated the New York Jets Green & White Scrimmage on Saturday night.

Marcus May and his 60-yard pick six of Josh McCown? McCown finishing with two touchdowns in total? How about young Christian Hackenberg impressing everybody with his play, especially a score to rookie Jordan Leggett after he stepped up in the pocket brilliantly while feeling the pressure around him?

Are any of those options the top play of the night that the New York Jets held their annual Green & White Scrimmage at MetLife Stadium this past Saturday?

Forget about it. Of course none of the above finished as the top highlight.

Why? Well, there was a special talent in the house on this particular night.

Meet young Jesse Pallas, the star of the night. This 11-year-old was diagnosed with leukemia in 2011 and is now in remission. Therefore, it was only natural for the kid to showcase his burgeoning talent in front of the MetLife Stadium crowd.

With his 50-yard burst of energy, he took a McCown handoff to the house, claiming MVP honors among many candidates:

Sorry Hack, you just can’t match up on this night. Nobody dominated like Pallas did during the Green & White Scrimmage.
