Bears ballboy Darryl MaGee outran Lions kick coverage during Johnny Knox return

SHARE Bears ballboy Darryl MaGee outran Lions kick coverage during Johnny Knox return

Bears wide receiver Johnny Knox electrified the Soldier Field crowd Sunday with a 102-yard kickoff return to begin the second half. But it’s a uncommonly speedy ballboy who’s continuing to raise some eyebrows in the aftermath.

The as-yet-unnamed ballboy kept pace with Knox as he raced down the field, even outpacing some members of the Lions’ kick coverage team.

The 24-year-old, identified by ESPN 1000’s Waddle & Silvy Show as Darryl MaGee of Champaign, called into the show this morning. He told hosts Marc Silverman and Tom Waddle that he found out from friends that a highlight of him keeping pace with Knox was blowing up.

On his Twitter account MaGee said, “Man I’m all over the internet and ESPN now!!!!! I definately [sic] didn’t expect this!”:
