Petey Williams Bends Backwards a la 'The Matrix,' Dodges Tackle [VIDEO]

Thought you could only see someone bend backwards without falling in 'The Matrix'?

Well, think again.

It's a very possible, realistic feat, and, depending on the circumstances, it can get you out of jam. That's exactly what happened Friday night during a high school football game that pitted undefeated Leesville Road against conference rival Wake Forest-Rolesville in the second round of the NCHSAA state football playoffs.

Wake Forest return man Petey Williams didn't dodge bullets like Neo, but he did pull a Matrix-like juke to avoid an oncoming tackler during a kick return.  His team lost, but, nevertheless, his move might be even more memorable than the opposition's win.

The move might pique some recruiters' interests in Williams, although he still has a year left to wow the crowd again.

Check out the spectacular move below:
