Va. Beach native returns kick for TD in Super Bowl

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (WAVY) – Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin once again showed off that electric play-making ability he’s been so well known for, even going back to his days at Landstown High School in Virginia Beach. Only this time, it was on display in the biggest football game in the world.

Harvin returned the opening second-half kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown in Super Bowl XLVIII, giving the Seahawks a 29-0 lead over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Ironically, the Broncos- trailing 22-0 at the time- tried to pooch kick the ball in order to prevent a Harvin return.

Harvin, who lead the Landstown Eagles to a state championship in 2004, and then the University of Florida to a national championship in 2009, played in just one full game over the 2013 regular season due to hip surgery. He made his return against the New Orleans Saints in the division round of the NFL playoffs, then the very next week had to sit out the NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers after suffering a concussion.
