Rock Hill High (Rock Hill, S.C.) has been overshadowed by its crosstown rivals, nationally-ranked Northwestern High (Rock Hill, S.C.), all season. On Friday, one Rock Hill star ensured that wouldn't be the case, if only for a night.
In the midst of a narrow, 29-23 victory against nearby Fort Mill High (Fort Mill, S.C.), fantastically named senior wide receiver Jua'quan Feaster took matters into his own hand on one play in the red zone. After bringing in a desperation jump pass from Fort Mill quarterback Brandon Banks, Feaster took the ball along the right hash mark toward the end zone. For the first six to seven yards it was smooth sailing. The last two were much more interesting.
Feaster could see the end zone. There were just two big problems for Feaster: a pair of Fort Mill defenders between he and the goal line. The athletic receiver knew what to do. He took off, spiraled twice in what could easily double as an Olympic gymnastics move and eventually landed in the end zone. MaxPreps dubbed the twisting, turning leap a 'corkscrew flip', and that seems like as accurate a moniker as available.
Given that the victory came by just six points, that touchdown was essential. The move was memorable, and there's little question that Rock Hill fans will remember it for some time to come.
