What a way to lose a game.

The losing team must have been kicking themselves for that mistake :34:
what do you suppose will be that dude's nickname for the rest of his life?
Homeboy will NEVER live that down. Forty years from now when he gets together with his buddies, he'll still be that guy.
I always love to laugh at athlete absent-mindedness/stupidity, primarily because a lot of it is relatable to everyone.
One of my favorite examples of all time I saw as an animated gif on some website. A football player is running toward the end zone, football in hand, and he decides to be a showoff. He leaps headfirst, arms outstretched, obviously trying to do a leaping flip/somersault. However, he lands about 6 inches short of the goal line, the ball pops out of his hand for a fumble, and the other team recovers.
That is the coaches fault. Why in the hell would he have two guys standing back there to catch a last second field goal when YOU ARE IN THE LEAD? First of all, he should have sent everyone to try and block the kick. You never do that at the end of a game when you are in the lead. Was the coach a Bears fan? Seriously, forget the kid, the coach should be fired.
I can't agree with you here, Mason.
The coach's defensive call was sound. His lead was less than a touchdown, so he fielded a prevent formation for the last play as a hedge against his opponents running a fake FG play and throwing a hail-mary for the end zone.
No, the kid was just stupid. He should have put his knee on the ground immediately.
There is no doubt the kid is stupid, but so are most high school kids. That is the point, you should know your kids and know that most of them have no idea about football and how it's played, it is an epidemic spreading throughout the current generation. They had a time out, which is more than enough time to say, "Don't catch the kick if it comes to you". Nothing can be assumed in football today, especially on the level those kids were playing...although I see your point about the prevent for the fake.
Thats what i see too. I feel bad for the kid really.
Maybe he wasn't anticipating a player doing 3 stupid things on one play.
Catching the field goal attempt
Running it out
Dropping a live ball for the opponent to recover.
Good thing it was Vermont.
In Texas the coach and the kid would both be in witness protection if they were still alive.
