Crazy things happen in high school football, but it’ll be a long time before you’ll see anything like this again.
In the Mississippi 3A Championship Game, Hazlehurst’s John Bridges is stripped as he’s attempting to score the go-ahead touchdown. Charleston defensive lineman Jamal Brock and attempts to advance the ball, but Hazlehurst wide receiver Dycelious Reese strips the ball and runs it into the end zone for the go-ahead score.
Hazlehurst won the game 21-20.
The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat all rolled into one play.
