It came in a rout, but it was not lost on those who saw it. A Texas quarterback became the latest to complete a wild, overhead, behind-the-back touchdown pass.
The completion you see above from Yorktown’s Jayden Webb came during a 52-0 rout of a completely overmatched Kenedy squad. Obviously, that’s the time to try exploratory trick plays that revolve around tossing a football over one’s head while facing backwards.
As insane as this touchdown play was, it isn’t the first time we’ve seen a behind-the-back, over-the-head touchdown pass in a football game. In fact, it isn’t even the first time we’ve seen this play this month, though the first time was in a very different setting: a youth football game in Minnesota.
This time it was for real, in a bona fide varsity football game in Texas of all places. There’s no sugarcoating that, and we’re betting that Webb and co. were well aware of just how rare what they accomplished is.
