When discussing wild NFL kick returns, not too many can compare with that of Woodrow Dantzler's 2002 touchdown return for the Dallas Cowboys. Take a look.

Chris Berman's commentary makes this highlight even better as Woodrow "tiny" Dantzler (Berman's nickname) breaks seven or eight would-be San Francisco 49ers tacklers before taking this one to the house.

The balance is the trait that really stands out on this one. Dantzler bounces off hard hits, spins off tackles and tip-toes the sideline with two steps and a hop that display an incredibly high level of both concentration and athleticism.

As Berman notes, Dantzler could become a future tight rope walker after his NFL career, and he's not wrong. This triple-skip of a balancing act is truly unbelievable at this speed and momentum.

As we look back on sports history, we can only sit back and appreciate plays like this, and thank the heavens that Dantzler had the perfect name to match this wonderful feat.
