Covering High School Sports in America


One of the wackiest plays from last weekend comes from the foothills of the Allegheny mountains in West Virginia.

Buckhannon-Upshur (Buckhannon, W. Va.) took on Preston on Friday night.

At one point, Buckhannon-Upshur first-year coach Duane Stoeckle called what appeared to be a halfback option.

The running back, Todd Edwards, sprints out to the right looking downfield.

However, with his intended receiver in double coverage, he scrambles precariously to the left and drifts 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage.

As he nears the left sideline, Edwards spots an open man, Dillon Gaudet in the end zone.

Edwards lofts the pass in his direction and Gaudet hauls it in for an improbable score.

Buckhannon-Uproar went on to win 50-28.
