High school American football might feature basic tactics and plays; but it can on occasion, provide moments of brilliance
frustration (delete as appropriate).
In the video above, Bozeman High School’s opportunistic linebacker Payton O’Reilly steals the football from the opposition kicker and proceeds to run the length of the field to score an impressive touchdown.
The touchdown put the team 14-0 ahead in a game they went on to win.
Bozeman head coach Troy Purcell praised the linebacker when speaking to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
“The special teams play by Payton O’Reilly on the blocked field goal was just a terrific play … that was the back-breaker.”
The video also features a similar play during a college game where the kicker is chased down but the length is nowhere near the same as O’Reilly’s 80 yard sprint.
