Incredible final play = Jacobs win
Oct 5, 2013 12:47 AM -
Football lore is dotted with nicknames for crazy plays that decided games such as the Immaculate Reception, the Music City Miracle and "The Play" involving California and the Stanford band. Jacobs High School added The Moon-Walk to that list Friday night. With time left for one play in a tie game, Jacobs QB Bret Mooney took the shotgun snap at his own 48-yard line and dropped back against a prevent defense. With no receiver open he took off running. Mooney was about to be tackled along the left sideline when he pulled up at the CL South 26-yard line, turned across his body and fired a lateral pass to speedy running back Josh Walker, who caught it between the hash marks at the 28. Walker avoided a tackler, cut outside toward the other sideline and outraced the Gators to the front corner of the end zone long after time had expired, giving Jacobs (4-2, 3-0 Fox Valley Valley) a shocking 26-20 win, its fourth straight.
