Video: A Georgia HS game ends with their own version of the "Kick Six"

CentralCarrollton

The Iron Bowl's "Kick Six" moment is one of most memorable finishes in the history of college football...an instant classic. So you can understand my excitement when a regional championship game between two high school's in Georgia ended in a very similar fashion, with a unique twist of its own.

Here's the situation, Callaway HS and Central-Carroll HS are tied up at 34 points a piece with :02 seconds left in regulation.

Callaway lines up to kick the winning field goal (a 30 yard chip shot by my estimation) but Central-Carroll HS has some plans of their own. They block the kick, a player scoops it, looks to reverse field, and then scampers up the sideline untouched as the stadium goes nuts.

You'll have to watch it a few times to really grasp all of the craziness that happens after the snap.

From what I can tell, that ball was really close to crossing the line of scrimmage after the block, thus sending the game into overtime and depriving us of this great ending. Heads up play by the kid scooping it up, and finding his way to the end zone to help them get to 10-0 and bring a regional title home.
