And Now, A High School Football Bounce Pass

By | 4 Comments

<a href="" title="Go to MaxPreps Video to see more high school sports video." > There are a lot of factors at play when I'm deciding what to write about -- whether or not the story will bring in traffic, whether or not I can approach the story with a unique perspective -- but no modifier gives a story a bigger push onto With Leather than "Brandon couldn't do this if you gave him 10,000 tries". Enter: the bounce pass to hail mary. The football bounce pass is among the rarest of the trick plays, and it was pulled off with peak accuracy by Fort Lauderdale Westminster Academy on the first play from scrimmage in their victory over Coral Springs Charter. It was a special play designed for Senior Night, and the only way it would've been better is if they'd brought brooms on to the field and curled that shit into the end zone. Here's a rundown of the play, courtesy of <a href="" target="_blank">Prep Rally</a>: Traditional Westminster running back Spencer Saliba lined up as the team's quarterback, taking a snap in the shotgun.
