Welcome to Super Six Plays, where we’ll be digging up and dissecting six of the best plays from across the nation with the help of our partners over at High School Cube. Gear up for the week ahead with a heavy dose of big hits and huge touchdowns every Monday.
1) De’Angelo Robinson’s double overtime blocked field goal for Prospect — Sometimes it’s the combination the play and the circumstances that make a moment so electric. That was certainly the case in the final play of Prospect’s 45-42, double overtime victory against Illinois rival Wheeling, all thanks to cornerback De’Angelo Robinson.
2) Isaac James’ 81-yard touchdown pass to Collin Pearson for Carmel — Carmel topped Warren Central in one of the weekend’s biggest games, and it was this early play that truly set the tone. James, a stand-in quarterback for Carmel, delivered this picture perfect ball to Pearson to give the Greyhounds an early lead that they never relinquished.
3) Malek Young’s interception return for Coconut Creek — No, this wild interception return for a touchdown by Malek Young wasn’t enough to win the game for Coconut Creek (it fell, 34-33, to Cardinal Gibbons), but it did change the complexion of the game, and put a jolt into a Creek squad that looked like it might fade away otherwise.
4) Andrew Sorensen’s big hit for Brandon Valley — This shot may not have had the biggest impact of the week, but it might have been the most foreceful, with Brandon Valley linebacker Andrew Sorenson exploding to the ball and drilling the Aberdeen running back. Ouch.
5) Austin Mack’s touchdown catch for Bishop Luers — There weren’t too many things for Bishop Luers to be happy about following a 43-13 loss to Bishop Hartley from Columbus, Ohio, but the Indiana squad did get one of the best touchdown receptions we’ve seen all year from wideout Austin Mack on this play.
6) Devin Floyd’s run-after-catch 37-yard touchdown for Citrus Hill — West Valley tried valiantly to stick with Citrus Hill, but they just couldn’t do it. Devin Floyd was a huge part of the reason why, as his athleticism and tenacity with the ball was consistently too much for West Valley to handle in a 56-25 Citrus Hill victory.
