kicked a 24-yard field goal to give Anderson County (Lawrenceburg, Ky.) a 52-50 lead over Franklin County (Frankfort, Ky.)
with just 14 seconds left to play.
Game over, right? Wrong!Lorenzo McCaskell
fielded the following kickoff and handed off to Mr. Football candidate Ryan Timmons
. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound speedster avoided the first wave of tacklers by cutting to his right, went back to his left to find running room and went all the way for a spectacular 80-yard touchdown as time elapsed for a scintillating 56-52 victory.
Franklin County coach Chris Tracy told Mike Fields of the Lexington Herald-Leader that Timmons' clutch touchdown was "absolutely, 100 percent, the best play he's ever made. That's why he's the best player in the state. You can tell people what he does, but unless they see it for themselves, see it live, they can't appreciate it."
