VIDEO: Here's the fake spike TD that earned a last second Nevada win

By

We brought you the story of McQueen High’s miraculous last second touchdown that sparked a win over crosstown rival Reno on Friday. Now we’ve got video of the fake spike score that captured everyone’s attention.

As you can see above, quarterback Jonathan Weethee faked a spike at the Reno 7-yard-line in favor of a pass to receiver Nate Agliolo. The real star of the play was Agliolo, who still had to time his jump perfectly while squeezing between a pair of Reno defenders to grab the game-winner as time wound down, earning McQueen a 10-7 victory.

“No one knows besides the receiver and the quarterback what’s going on; they make the call and everybody else is lined up like it’s a spike,” McQueen coach Jim Snelling told our partners at the Reno Gazette. “We just took a shot and it worked. We were fortunate.

“It was a battle, back and forth. What a great way to end the regular season for both teams, from the standpoint of just (being) a hard-fought game.”

Now we can see just how well that shot worked.
