It wouldn't be another week of high school sports without a stockroom full of great video clips that are just starting to come to surface. So, without further adu, here's some of the best.
• Adam Olsen, Pine City (Minn.) vs. Rush City (Minn.): Pine City cruised to a 54-0 victory in this Minnesota matchup, but it's hard to fault the Rush City defenders for failing to bring down Olsen on this play. Check out the final spin he uses to drop Rush City's No. 11, who was one of three different Rush City defenders to come to a sliding halt on the play.
• Running back Justin Fowlkes, Delavan-Darien (Wisc.) vs. Lake Geneva Badger (Wisc.): Just because Justin Fowlkes' hurdle didn't end up in the end zone doesn't make it less spectacular. The speedy back's heroics didn't stop after this play, either: He finished with 207 yards and a whopping five touchdowns in the Comets' 40-20 win.
• Alex Davis, Sycamore (Ohio) junior varsity vs. Springboro (Ohio) junior varsity: We really have no idea how Davis held on to this pass from quarterback Jordan Mueller in the end zone, but someone should probably check his gloves for illegal substances. Even then, the ball was behind the defender's back!
• Alex Kviklys, Pope (Ga.) vs. Kennesaw Mountain (Ga.): To be fair, we would have been content using video of just one of Kviklys kick offs that boomed through the uprights for a field goal that would have been good from 75 yards, but the kid kicked two of those in the same game. It certainly eliminates the possibility of random chance, doesn't it? Just in case there was any doubt, Kviklys also connected on a field goal with 4:13 left to give Pope it's final 24-20 win.
• Mark Nemes, Hannibal (Mo.) vs. Hickman (Mo.): Nemes, a senior running back and special teams star, pulled in this one-handed grab during the second quarter of Hanibal's 17-14 loss. The back later scored on the drive to give Hannibal an 8-6 lead.
• Carlos Cisneros, Elk Grove (Ill.) vs. Hersey (Ill.): This shot may not have come with five seconds left from 40 yards out to win the game, but it did tie a game ... and it came from 35 yards out, with even more velocity. Hersey eventually would get the last say in this suburban Chicago matchup, pulling out a 2-1 victory in overtime.
