High school quarterback scrambles for 18 seconds before throwing Hail Mary (video)


When it comes to ridiculous Hail Mary touchdown passes, high school senior Dejon Williams may have set the bar unattainably high. The Muir (Pasadena, California) quarterback heaved a 38-yard pass to receiver Marceles Clash to give Muir a 28-14 halftime lead over Norwalk, which doesn’t sound all that amazing until you watch the video.

For a fun activity, see how many things you can do before the pass is thrown. I managed to knit a scarf!

To all you quarterbacks out there, this is the new standard we will be judging Hail Marys by. Step up your skills accordingly. Simply dropping back and chucking the ball down the field isn’t going to cut it anymore. You have been warned.

(Okay, so Norwalk came back to win the game in the end, but the final score doesn’t lessen the impressiveness of Williams’ scramble. I swear I’ve seen a Jimmie John’s employee make me a sandwich in less time than it took for Williams to get that pass off.)
