While some high school football teams are playing Week 5 games and some have yet to take the field, there might already be a winner for play of the year. The wild ending that saw Hillcrest (Tuscaloosa, Ala.)
beat Wetumpka 35-30 likely will remain unchallenged in the annals of crazy football finishes.
Unofficially, the play included a completed forward pass, 10 laterals and pair of fumbles that led to an eventual touchdown by Hillcrest quarterback Ethan Crawford
— who began the entire sequence with a short completion.
How insane was that play? It was so captivating that it easily outpaced a Licking Valley (Newark, Ohio)
Hail Mary completion with time expiring to escape with a 24-22 win over Granville. With one second left, Cameron Parmer
heaved a 40-yard bomb to the end zone and found Denali Harris
for the win.
