After falling behind with less than a minute left in the game, Logan County (Russellville, Kentucky) needed the drive of a career to take the win and remain undefeated.
That drive came. It culminated in a Hail Mary for the Logan County victory. The Cougars defeated Madisonville-North Hopkins (Kentucky) 26-24 on Friday night.
The pass, thrown by senior Tyler Ezell as time expired, was batted away by a Madisonville defender. However, instead of the ball going straight down, it went to the right side of the defender — straight toward wide receiver Jaden Sells, who dove for it and came down with the winner, according to KY High Football.
