Ever Seen a Snap Get Intercepted for a Touchdown? (Video)

Dodge City, Kansas, has a population of about 27,000 people.

Garden City, Kansas, has a population of about 26,000 people.

These two small towns are about 50 miles apart in the southwestern corner of Kansas. Both are a one-and-a-half hour drive to the nearest interstate, and Dodge is a two-and-a-half hour drive from the nearest big city.

And that big city is Wichita.

So from the perspective of city-folk like me, these towns are pretty much in the middle of nowhere. And this, I imagine, is a big reason why the rivalry between their football teams—the Dodge City Red Demons and the Garden City Trojans—is such a big deal. They call their annual battle “The Hatchet Game,” and they’ve been playing each other for 75 years now.

Now, in this kind of rivalry, you always hate to lose. But just imagine how much worse it would burn to lose on a boneheaded turnover like an interception.

Garden City knows this pain. They lost the anual game against Dodge City a few weeks ago because of an interception. But it wasn’t a pass that was intercepted. It was a snap.

That’s right. A snap. Like, from the center to the quarterback. Intercepted. Returned for a touchdown. Seriously. It totally happened, and there’s video to prove it.

You see, the quarterback was lined up in a shotgun formation, waiting for a shotgun snap. But either the center didn’t know the quarterback was in shotgun formation, or he gave the worst shotgun snap of his life, because he hiked the ball straight up into the air. Then, Dodge City defensive back Immanuel Galloway intercepted it and returned it for a 78-yard touchdown.

Check it out:

Dodge City went on to win 24-20 and claim the precious hatchet.

Talk about a humiliating way to lose.
