Midland High School Kicker Hits Ref With Ball, Still Makes Extra Point
Midland Lee kicker Luis Aranda booted the ball and it took a couple crazy bounces in the second quarter of the Rebels versus El Paso El Dorado last Friday.
CBS 7 had video of the crazy play. I asked our sports specialist and host of Jack Dale's Sportsline with Steve Dale about the play. He said the referee is considered to be on the field of play, so if the ball bounces off one of them it's still live.
But the ball still almost didn't make it, as it needed one more lucky bounce on the cross bar before making it through.
If this doesn't make ESPN somehow, it's a travesty of justice.
