The Greatest High School Football Play That Never Counted (Video)
The athleticism shown on this play by Bay City All Saints High School’s Drew Janer is simply amazing. Most players wouldn’t even bother attempting to block an extra point attempt, but not Drew. He was licking his chops on the defensive side of the ball, waiting for the Lutheran Seminary High School center to snap the ball so that he could make a play. And when the time came, that is exactly what Drew did.
Timing the snap count perfectly, Janer leaped the entire offensive line and smoked the holder before the kick could even be attempted. That play would have kept his team up by a single point, but it was all for not.
Unfortunately, as it is stated within the rules of the National Federation of State High School Associations, players are to be penalized for hurdling another player at the line of scrimmage. In Drew’s case, it appears as though he hurdled three.
A flag was thrown, Drew was penalized, the ensuing kick was good, and Bay City would eventually go on to lose the game by a score of 21-18. But that isn’t going to stop us from watching what may very well be one of the greatest high school football plays that never counted, over and over and over…
