Washington High School Behind-the-Back 2-Point Conversion Is Nuts

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterSeptember 28, 2012

The hippest thing in sports seems to be throwing a football behind the back to the unlikeliest of success. 

I don't know, I always felt throwing a football the correct way was a sufficient enough way to get it from point A to point B. 

Earlier in the week, we brought you a magical video of an intramural flag-football quarterback tossing a 30-yard TD with a behind-the-back throw. 

He apparently did it simply because he could. Man's game. 

Now we have a video that trumps that effort for one reason: This took place during an actual high school football clash with the game on the line. 

With pressure mounting, the coach decided the team should run that miracle play. 

In a game between Tumwater (Wash.) High and Olympia (Wash.) Capital High, Tumwater QB Jayden Croft hits Jamie Bryant in the end zone for a touchdown, putting his team down by a mere two points with three minutes to play. 

Yahoo Sports gives us more information on the gutsiest two-point conversion we have ever seen. 

Tumwater coach Sid Otton called for a trick play on which Croft would toss up the ball with his back to goal, putting it in play on the goal line and hoping that the 6-foot-5 Bryant, a Washington commit, would get up to catch it.

You might think that this idea was a whole lot of kooky talk, but in the end the brash move works perfectly. 

By perfect, we mean it just worked. When you are planning on blindly throwing a ball into the end zone, any amount of reception is perfection.
