It's generally not acceptable to run a no-huddle offense in the final minutes of a game you're leading 52-21. Going for a two-point conversion after scoring a touchdown as time expires? Blasphemy.
But the Braddock (Miami, Fla.) football team had a pretty good reason reason to run up the score, and it had nothing to do with any animosity toward Coral Park. Braddock coach Frank Rojas wanted to give senior running back Davonte Pollard, who began losing his sight when he was 9 and is now legally blind, a chance to score.
Pollard, who can only see colors, entered the game with two carries on the season.
“After the game we were shaking hands, and I was so excited my hand was shaking,” Pollard said. “Everybody was happy for me; everybody was giving me hugs.”
