Crazy High School Football Ending

Recommended Posts

UTAH - Spanish Fork High School (red, wearing Buckeye-style uniforms) is winning over Maple Mountain 14-11 with 0:03 seconds left on 4th down. With the defense still having a timeout to spare, their quarterback snaps it and casually rolls out to the side to burn the remaining 3 seconds.


As time expires, however, he failed to either kneel or run out of bounds and the Maple Mountain defense strips the ball, running it back for a game-winning TD:

I couldn't tell if he was stripped or just dropped the ball. Either way, this game is going to haunt that poor kid for a lonnnggg time.

I think it was stripped...in any case, his reaction clearly shows that he thinks the game is over and these guys are just being post-game jerks (for a second until he runs after them).

I think it ended their season too. Knowing nothing about the kid, I wonder whether this will have lifelong negative implications.

My understanding is that it did end their season. It was a play-in game for the state playoffs.

Part of the implications for the kid will depend on the reaction of those around him. Hopefully everyone will be supportive and realize that he just made a mistake . . . and not turn him into Steve Bartman or Bill Buckner.
