Coach calls time out after the running backs run to the wrong hole 3 times in a row with 4 mins to go in the fourth quarter. With his team up 8 points. It was 4th and 10 at the other teams 40. Coach comes out to rip his players in the huddle. While in the huddle he turns and points to number 78 of the other team. Telling him that is where his team would run the ball. Then telling the rest of that team to get ready because the ball would be run right at #78. Back in the huddle the the QB says I guess we are running the ball at #78. The team runs the ball at #78. When it is measured they came up about 4 inches short. Only to force a fumble and recover it. To then run the ball to run out the clock.


The first game that year that team ran QB sneak 8 straight times to end a game for the win.

Kind of like what Michigan State did yesterday, but in his last game as head coach at Rock Hill, Todd Knipp called a time out while his team was on defense with over a minute left. Coal Grove was behind by 2(I think) and was driving. Todd had his team stand down and not go after the runner and let Coal Grove score a 15 yard touchdown so Rock Hill would have one last possession to win it. Almost worked too, Rock Hill got it to the Coal Grove 25, and had it not been for a controversial no call of pass interference, Rock Hill may have won that game.

Fort Frye hired an ex pee wee coach in the mid 2000's for high school. They ran crazy formations every series. It didn't work.

Anyone see the winning touchdown call for Burg to win State Championship. Not a commonplace play call!

Was it a quick kick on 3rd down on their own 2 yd line with them up by 2 with 8 sec left, and the defense had a time-out left? If so, it may have been an attempt to run out the clock with the ball rolling on the ground, instead of running it into the line, the defense taking a time-out, and then punting into a fair catch and a free kick gets converted into a one point win by the defense! Am I wrong that you can still get a free kick if you make a fair catch after the clock expires?

Saw Portsmouth throw a screen pass with the lead, very little time left, from inside their own 10. It ended up being a pick 6 and they lost.

No if I remember right the ball was on the teams own 45 or so yd line in the 3rd quarter
