You just tied the game at 9-9 with a late 4th quarter TD drive. Get the ball back. You get into field goal range with under a minute to go. A chip shot to knock off #17 Mt Carmel and....dead. They're dead. Absolutely DEVASTATING. I honestly can't think of a worse or more improbable way to lose a game. This is the High School football version of the Kick 6 Iron Bowl game. Unbelievable. There's just something special about High School football. Even though Rita kids had their hearts punted to the moon on this play they still get to have the moment. They still get to play football. Soak in the pain because the abyss of the next 60 years of not playing sports is right around the corner. Get ready for next week and cherish it
I'd like to give Illinois High School football some love this season. If your team has a crazy moment send it in.
Even if you're on the losing end of things it's better than what happened to kids who got their senior seasons canceled last year. Remember that.
