Took awhile for the payoff, and yep, he's pretty farking dumb alright

Yeeesh. Ouch. Oof. Ugly. Yikes. God Almighty.

That kid is in for a scholastic lifetime of locker stuffings.

I love when showboating backfires.

Now that...is just plain horrible. Luckily that kid didn't have a bus ride home afterwards, because if he did he would have spent it duct taped to the tailpipe or something. As it is, he's NEVER living that down. Best bet is to move to NYC or LA and just disappear.

I believe that there is a shooting offense in Texas.

Could have used an editor for that video, but DAMN. Is that Leon Lett's kid?

- Catch a short field goal attempt.
- Carry the live ball into the field of play.
- Intentionally fumble while trying to do a "cool" spike.
- Watch the opposing team pick up your stupid fumble and score 6.
- Cry yourself to sleep at night.

Wow. Maybe the coaching staff should have taught him the rules of the game before putting him on the field. Ouch.

Why were they back there anyway? There's no point to catching that ball in the first place

Just popped in to remind everyone that not all football players are idiots. Sort of like how all people in coffee shops aren't douchebags.

And If I still remember that 35 years later, I pity this kid.

They were probably there in the event the other team ran a fake. 46 yards is pretty long for a high school attempt.

What would have happened if he hadn't caught the ball? Is the ball dead after a short FG attempt, if the defense doesn't touch it first?

From the video
Player: "That's crazy; that's going to be on YouTube."
Reporter: "More importantly, that's going to be on Channel 3, thank you very much."


Try going on Channel 3 on YouTube! It could even be a Yo Dawg joke.

We'd be far more concerned with the field they're playing on. That thing looks like what our Pee Wee leagues play on, Texas high schools generally blow millions to have huge stadiums.

Poorly coached idiot even...

It was an offensive down. Once the down begins, the ball is live. If the ball is kicked through the goalposts, it's a field goal. If it misses but lands beyond the end zone, it's dead. If it remains in play, it's the equivalent of a fumble - a live ball. It's as if the offense had faked the field goal and then fumbled.

LandStander: What would have happened if he hadn't caught the ball? Is the ball dead after a short FG attempt, if the defense doesn't touch it first?

Yes. If the ball hits the ground after crossing the line on a FG, it's a dead ball. If it gets blocked and never crosses the line, it's actually a live ball.

A Pittsburgh game ended that way a few years ago against Cleveland. In overtime, the Steelers attempted a FG on 3rd down (you know, in case it's a bad snap or something so they can just fall on it) and actually had it blocked. It stayed behind the line of scrimmage, and they fell on it. Thus they just lost the down and got to kick again, naturally making it the second time.

CitizenTed: If it remains in play, it's the equivalent of a fumble - a live ball. It's as if the offense had faked the field goal and then fumbled.

Then why does the defense have to touch the ball on a punt before it becomes eligible for the other team to recover?

Are you sure? That seems like a pretty stupid rule...that a team can kick the ball forward and have it not touch the defense and recover it on a field goal attempt. But you could be correct.

Incorrect. (new window)

In high school, it's treated just like a punt. If the ball is untouched by the defense and the kicking teach touches it, the ball is dead at that point (if it crossed the line of scrimmage).

srhp29: Then why does the defense have to touch the ball on a punt before it becomes eligible for the other team to recover?

Same principle. The defense recovered the field goal attempt ahead of the endzone (live ball). He then spiked it thinking the game was over (fumble). The kicking team recovered the ball and ran it in.

On a punt if the defense does not touch the ball the offense has to touch it to stop play. They cannot recover it and run it farther.

I understand why this play resulted the way it did. What I was saying is had he not touched it at all, the game would have just been over. Once they saw it was not a fake, they should have just moved away from the ball, right?

From Wikipedia:

In the NFL, missed field goals attempted from the 20-yard line or closer result in the opposing team taking possession at the 20-yard line. Missed field goals attempted from beyond the 20-yard line result in the opposing team taking possession at the spot of the kick. Until 1994, the opposing team would take position at the line of scrimmage, unless the kick was attempted from inside the 20-yard line.

Prior to the 1974 season, missed field goals resulted in the opposing team gaining possession at the line of scrimmage or the 20-yard line, whichever was closer to the goalpost.

Under NHFS (high school) rules a field goal attempt is no different from any other scrimmage kick (punt, drop kick). If the field goal attempt is no good and becomes dead in the end zone it is a touchback. If the ball becomes dead on the field the defensive team will next put the ball in play from that point.

The opposing team may also catch a missed field goal and attempt to return it.


I never knew that about NFL field goals inside 20, but it seems to check out (new window).

So it seems in HS, a missed FG is no different than a punt.

Not the same principle at all. In fact, just the opposite.

Actually his coach is the dumbest person ever. Why have a guy back there on a last second FG to win?
