It’s the kind of play sandlot football players draw up in the dirt. But this trick play led to a thrilling overtime victory for a Georgia high school team.
A trick play involving a behind-the-back pass led to a winning touchdown for Loganville High School against rival Monroe Area High School on Friday night, the Athens Banner-Herald reported.
A group of Georgia high school football players and friends are being hailed as heroes for jumping into action and saving a woman from a potentially fiery car crash.
Teammates Treyvon Adams, Tyson Brown, Antwion Carey, Alto Moore, and Cesar Parker, along with classmate Messiah Daniels, helped pull a 50-year-old woman from her car after it was hit outside their high school in Rome, a city about 70 miles northwest of Atlanta.
The boys, who are ages 14 to 17 and grew up together, were arriving at school Friday when they saw the wreck.
Luis Goya, who teaches math at the high school, told USA TODAY he was standing outside the school watching students enter when he heard a loud noise just before 8 a.m. He ran to a nearby intersection, saw the crash, and called 911.
"There was smoke coming up from the hood. There was fluid on the ground," Goya said. "I told the dispatcher, 'We need to hurry!'"
Treyvon told USA TODAY he watched the crash take place as he drove four of the boys to school.
ELLENWOOD, Ga. — High school football teams around the country are starting training this time of year, including the Cedar Grove Saints.
On a hot, humid morning, players were doing drills on the field behind their suburban Atlanta high school as head coach John Adams gave them guidance and encouragement.
This is a good team; they've won four state titles in the past six years, and four former Saints were in the NFL draft this past year – more than any other high school in the country.
So Adams was excited about the upcoming season. But he was also watchful about keeping the athletes safe as they worked out in the Atlanta heat.
