I wonder how many times he thought, "Did that just happen?" on his way to the end-zone?

Why was one of his team mates trying to tackle him?

And it was all set up because of a mismanagement of the clock. The game had been tied 21-21 with 1:45 to go when the losing team got the ball. There was a drive by the losing team (North Oldham) The losing team had called a TO to set up an apparent winning FG with 10 seconds on the clock. The FG was good. Then North Oldham did an onsides kick instead of a squib kick to kill the clock. This gave the winning team (Owensboro) time for the winning TD pass. Better situation woud have been to let the clock run down to about 3 seconds to attempt the FG. But hindsight is 20/20 and this is HS, not college or the NFL.

Owensboro has now earned the rights to play Fort Thomas Highlands in the state Class 4A finals.

Not sure of the timeout situation, but stopping it at 10 could have allowed another timeout in the case of a botched snap for another try.

Yeah, he actually extended his arm out, and tried to grab the jersey. Rather odd.

I was watching the game on the internet and I believe it was their last TO.

The play was already weird - imagine the headlines if this guy tackled his teammate on the 1 yard line with no time left to send the other team to the state finals...

It looks like he was trying to get between his teammate with the ball and the defender that was gaining ground on the ball carrier. But yes, would have been tragic if that casued the ball carrier to be tackled on the one.

Sure looked like he was trying to grab his jersey. What if he did grab it and it slowed the ball carrier down enough to allow him to be tackled short of the end zone. Imagine living with that the rest of your life.

Something the coach will have to live with no doubt. They probably figured the best chance they had at losing the game was for a KO return and the least likely kick to get returned would be an onside kick. (remember the one in Texas called teh greatest comeback ever....)

As for time mismanagment..that stinks. As you said, it isnt CFB or NFL and lets face it, in HS you dont deal with that stuff very often.

Probably Bermuda grass. Games in KY are only played on neutral fields in the State Finals.
