There are moments in sports when you watch a play over and over again and still can’t totally grasp what happened (If you’re confused, just Google “David Tyree”).
This winning touchdown run by Genoa-Kingston (Ill.) High School senior Craig Billington is one of those moments. Billington, caught in the backfield by the Burlington Central (Ill.) High School defense, makes a few moves, a few cuts, and ends up making every single defender miss him on his way to the end zone for a game winning touchdown.
Seriously, watch the video and then explain to me how number three and number 18 don’t stop him in the backfield. It blows my mind. They have help all up the far side, and he is trapped with very little room to even breath, yet nobody can bring him down.
I don’t know a lot about football (I’m more of a basement guy), but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the Monday practice after this game for Burlington Central involved a lot of screaming and a lot of tackle dummies.
