When a high school highlight makes ESPN’s SportsCenter, you know it has to be spectacular.
Oklahoma’s Sand Springs’ upset of top-ranked Muskogee certainly fits that bill. After scoring a touchdown with six seconds left to pull within one point at 25-24, the Sandites elected to go for two and the win. But it was hardly that simple.
Sand Springs quarterback Hunter Greathouse dropped back and threw a pass across the middle that was batted into the air right back to him. Greathouse then caught the ball and scrambled across the field, eventually lateraling to Josh Taber at the 17-yard line and Taber cut it up the center of the field, broke a couple tackles and dove into the end zone for the win.
It was a ridiculous way to lose a game, and miraculous way to win one.
