High School Team Runs Fake-Spike Play for Game-Winning Touchdown

Ken ChinSocial Media StaffAugust 24, 2014

One Georgia high school football team broke out some trickery to start its season on the right foot this past weekend.

The North Gwinnett Bulldogs were trailing the top-ranked McEachern Indians with nine seconds remaining in their season opener when they dialed up the fake-spike play.

Bulldogs quarterback John Urzua took the snap, pump-faked the spike and found Kyle Knudsen for the touchdown. It was Urzua's seventh touchdown pass of the game, and it handed North Gwinnett a 52-49 victory.

In a game that featured seven lead changes, four of which came in the final seven minutes, it was a fitting end to an exciting high school shootout.
