Trinity U. Wins Game on 15 Lateral Final Play
Down by two with only a couple seconds left in the game Trinity University out of San Antonio didn't have much hope against the mighty Millsaps Majors. One play, 61 yards, and fifteen laterals later the Tigers were celebrating an improbably victory. Check out the video below:
Trinity did a great job of keeping the play alive and it actually looked like all of the laterals were legit laterals. Plays like this almost always end because someone (usually a lineman) makes a forward lateral in a panic. Somehow no players from either sideline wandered onto the field which also almost always happens.
Most of the 15 laterals didn't accomplish much but kept the ball alive long enough that the Millsaps players at some point must have been bored because they seemed a little disinterested in the whole thing by the end of the play. They didn't even seem too upset when Riley Curry took the ball into the end zone for the win.
What makes it even cooler is that I know the Bill Swint (and his family) who sent the video in and who I believe is the more excited one of the two announcers. Also, number 80 on the play is Shawn Thompson who went to my old high school and who I coached during my one inglorious season as a football coach at New Braunfels Canyon.
Amazing ending that will definitely be replayed for a long time.
