AFAIK it's illegal at any level (including NFL) to jump over the linemen. Reading the tiny article I'm not sure it was written by a human anyway, at least not one that ever got beyond 5th grade. I assume the reason the play succeeded was because no one was expecting it, because everyone else on the field knew it was illegal.
