High school football might not always be the best showcase of talent, but a lot of interesting things happens sometimes. In a game in Utah, the Olympus Titans were losing to the Springville Red Devils with 1.8 seconds left in the game, a 4A playoff game nonetheless. They needed a touchdown to win and were quite a ways from the end zone.

They called a play known as the “ace flipper option,” which is basically a hook, ladder and ladder. The team executes the play perfectly. Running back Coleman Meier was the last player to get the ball and he took it all the way down field to the end zone. That touchdown gave Olympus a 43-37 win over Springville.

Something tells me Meier is going to be telling that story for years to come when he relives his younger days. If anything I’m sure he’ll have this video bookmarked on his computer so he can show ever girl he meets in college.
