Oh, high school play-calling has gone crazy, and the “Ah, #$%^ it” playbook has apparently made its way to other teams.
Last week we saw the debut of the “wedding bouquet” pass—a term that Prep Rally has accurately nailed—at a Washington high school game, and we saw it once again for the second consecutive weekend. The timing and execution of this play, however, was even better.
Oakmont High (California) needed an extra point to tie the Lincoln Fighting Zebras with no time on the clock. Also, please take note of the awesomeness of a football team being named the Fighting Zebras.
They lined up for the extra point, but the holder (and QB) Tylor Laird stood up, turned around and chucked this baby over his head. Justin Holmes came down with it, and Oakmont took down the Fighting Zebras (still awesome) 44-43.
Just think, there are various high schools practicing this play around the country, and coaches teaching their players how to accurately throw balls backwards in the correct way. I really hope that
Lane Kiffin, it has to be Lane Kiffin someone tries this in college football in soon.
