Utter joy for the victors, despair of the lifetime for the defeated. Detroit Central Catholic’s 99-yard FG return takes down perennial national power De La Salle out of California leaving behind him a Trail of Tears not seen since Andrew Jackson’s administration. Too far? Possibly, but never underestimate the pain of losing a high school football game for a 16-18 year old.
Such a shame because this is 100% the coach’s fault. Who sends their high school kicker out for a 57-yard FG attempt? NFL All-Pro’s can’t even knock a 57-yarder through the uprights on most occasions. Set the kids up for disaster. A modern day Ray Finkle he may become.
