Well, the Central Catholic High (Lafayette, Ind.) special teams coach can't be happy.
His team may have won the war -- a 28-27 victory against Rensselaer Central High (Rensselaer, Ind.) on Friday -- but his punting unit most definitely lost this battle. Twice. To one player.
Rensselaer Central junior Dalton Souders blocked not one, but two punts on the same play -- the first on the punter's try from the 10-yard-line and the second in the end zone on the man originally assigned to block Souders -- resulting in a touchdown by senior Bombers teammate Beau Boswell (h/t Big Lead). Such havoc has never been wreaked.
Speaking of wreaking havoc, Souders has been a beast in every phase of the game this season. The 6-foot, 170-pound wide receiver, defensive lineman and (clearly) special teams stud has compiled 45 tackles, 6.5 sacks, two interceptions and a 27-yard fumble return defensively; four touchdowns on eight catches offensively; and, sadly, his ridiculous play this weekend only goes down in the books as a single blocked punt.
But the Central Catholic special teams coach is stuck watching this film, not the books.
