This High School Kicker Missed The Ball…But Where It Ended Up?! Unbelievable!
The kicker from Robert E. Lee High School landed a field goal this past week…but his delivery made the news! Instead of kicking it up and over into the large yellow “Y,” he kicked the football straight at the referee’s head. It bounced off (knocking the referee’s hat off of his head in the process!) and still made it into the goal after bouncing off of the yellow bar as well. The referee’s were stunned for a moment, but made the call that the kick was good! The crowd cheered after a moment, but this was a very interesting move, that’s for sure!
I wonder how this even came about! I’ve been to many a high school football game and although there have been some very outrageous plays, I’ve never seen anything like this! If the ball hadn’t have made it into the goal, do you think this referee would have gotten them in trouble? I hope this was just an accident! Although these kids have pretty good aim, I’m hesitant to believe that they would be that good. It seemed more that his foot may have slipped at the last second, but I think we may never truly know. Either way, what an amazing shot!
