Alabama 7A high school championship game. One team had a 9-point lead and the ball with 30 seconds left – and lost.
Synopsis – Taking a knee out of the shotgun, lost 25 yards but forced the trailing team to burn all its timeouts. Punted on fourth down; it was blocked and returned for a touchdown. Onside kick was successful. Two pass interference penalties put the ball in field goal range, and he made the 35-yarder on the last play to win the state title.
Oh yeah, I didn’t mention which school coughed up a 9-point lead in 18 seconds: Auburn High. Jason Autrey was nowhere to be found, I guess. In a complete lack of originality, Auburn High is also the Tigers.
