On the opening weekend of the football season, Kingsburg (Calif.) High quarterback Garrett Steele pulled off one of the plays of the season, connecting with wide receiver Taylor Abernathy on a Hail Mary after scrambling some 20 yards in the backfield to avoid being sacked. The pass, which came with no time remaining on the clock, gave the Vikings a shocking come-from-behind victory against San Luis Obispo (Calif.) High and started them on their way to an eventual berth in the California Central Section Division III football title game against Porterville (Calif.) High.
That's where Steele stood earlier this month, facing a fourth-and-10 from his team's own 19-yard-line, with just more than two minutes remaining in his team's season. His coach, Dave Steele (Garrett Steele's uncle) told the players that the scenario was exactly like the final snap in the season-opening win over San Luis, and to go out and do it again. Amazingly, they did just that, as you can see below.
