Shades of Michigan State with punt block for TD in final seconds for Maryland school

Good Counsel (Olney, Md.) had its own version of the Michigan State-Michigan finish on Saturday.

With overtime looming, Keandre Jones blocked a punt with 20 seconds remaining and Tremayne Scott scooped it up and ran in for the winning score in a 27-21 defeat of Bishop McNamara (Forestville, N.Y.).


The interesting note is that Jones had been removed from special teams duty because of a shoulder injury last week. Good Counsel calles timeout before the punt in order to get him on the field for the key sequence.

“I’m always ready, wherever they need me,” Jones told The Washington Post. “They wanted to rest me, and most people take off on special teams, but I love special teams. It’s a big part of the game, and you saw that with how it all played out.”

Jones, a Maryland commit, is ranked as the No. 11 outside linebacker in the nation and No. 6 player in the state of Maryland, so it made sense for him to play defense even if he was limited.

But when a big play was needed, Jones delivered.
