Just like Delavan-Darien (Wis.) junior varsity football coaches Kyle Polzin and Mike Royer drew it up.
I can only imagine they told sophomore quarterback Matthew Pierson to fire a pass off classmate Sean Wiese’s helmet, ricocheting the ball 15 yards into the end zone, where junior wide receiver Eric Norton will juggle it over one defender’s head and corral the catch for a touchdown. He executed to perfection.
This might be the greatest football play I’ve ever seen, and I don’t think I’m exaggerating one bit. The Delavan-Darien coaches should promote all three to varsity now, because there’s nothing JV about this.
On a scale of 1-10, the level of difficulty on this touchdown is something like eleventy bajillion. If every high school team everywhere tried this in every game this season, you couldn’t possibly recreate it. Norton makes an all-time great catch, and that’s not even close to the most ridiculous part of the play.
So, we can all go home now, folks. This is the best play of the year. It won’t be topped.
