Grade 6 Writing CCSS: CCRA.W.2, W.6.2e, W.7.2e, W.8.2e

Jack is writing an introduction to a school report about Jim Thorpe. Below is the passage he's reporting.
"America has claim to who in addition to being its greatest athlete may be called the world's greatest athlete. Jim Thorpe is an American who went on to be an accomplished college football player, pro football player, major league baseball player, and Olympic champion.
His college football career started at Carlisle Indian Industrial School. One example of his athletic greatness came during a game against Army in 1912. He scored on a 92-yard run; however, there was a penalty on the play, and it was recalled. On the very next play, Thorpe scored on a 97-yard run. This score was so totally sweet."

What would be a good way to change the sentence, "This score was so totally sweet," to better fit with the rest of Jack's report?
  1. This touchdown was an amazing feat because he ran nearly the length of the field.
  2. This score was totally awesome.
  3. This touchdown did not impress anyone because Thorpe did not run very quickly.
  4. This score was sweet.
