Texas High School Football Team Scores a Game-Winning Touchdown off a Squib Kick

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffSeptember 2, 2013

A Texas high school football game had an ending for the ages after one team returned a squib kick for a touchdown as time expired.

Copperas Cove (alma mater of Robert Griffin III) and A&M Consolidated scored a combined 44 points in the final 3:39 before Cove took a 41-38 lead in the closing seconds of the game. In an effort to run out the clock, it attempted a squib kick before this happened:

Derrick Dick's touchdown gave A&M Consolidated a 44-41 victory in one of the most exciting high school football finishes in recent memory. 

Hat tip to Deadspin for the find.
