Hunter Bucknam from Chaminade-Madonna (Hollywood, Fla.) might have made the block of the year in a 42-17 victory against Melbourne Central Catholic in the 3A state semifinal.
Here’s the video to prove it:
Then there was this on Saturday morning:
“They were punting the ball so I dropped back to block for my teammate,” he told USA TODAY High School Sports. “He went to the right side of the field and then looped back around to the left side.
“Once he was on his way to the left side I saw the block I had to make and I made it.”
The player on the receiving end was on the field before being able to get to the sideline.
“He didn’t get up for a while, and I had so much adrenaline rushing through my body that I didn’t feel it until I got to the sideline,” said Bucknam,a 6 foot, 220-pound senior linebacker.
Chaminade-Madonna (10-3) advances to meet Trinity Christian (Jacksonville) in the state final on Dec. 10 in Orlando.
