Throughout NFL history, we’ve seen our fair share of miracle plays.
Among the more notable ones: The Minneapolis Miracle, the Immaculate Reception, the Holy Roller, the Music City Miracle, the Miracle in Miami, the River City Replay, the Miracle in Motown and the David Tyree Helmet Catch.
But at the professional level, we haven’t seen anything like the game-winning play that the New London-Spicer High School football team performed on Saturday to capture the Class 3A State Championship.
New London-Spicer trailed Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton High School 26-21 with just four seconds remaining in Saturday’s state championship game. They were out of range for a Hail Mary pass, so the offense had to come up with something crafty.
Quarterback Blake Schultz completed a deep pass to Grant Paffrath well short of the end zone. Just when it looked like Paffrath was about to be taken down for the game-ending tackle, he lateraled it over to Brycen Christensen for the game-winning score.
Other high school teams and even college and NFL teams should take note. If you’re not in range to complete a Hail Mary pass to the end zone, why not attempt the play made famous by former Minnesota Vikings star wide receiver and Hall of Famer Randy Moss and Moe Williams?WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
