SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — It was a busy week on the football field with seven state championships and a college football rivalry. Here’s a look at this week’s KELOLAND.com top five plays.
HM: A great grab by Van Tol – Tea Area’s Chase Van Tol
The first honorable mention comes from Tea Area’s Chase Van Tol in the 11AA state championship. Quarterback Cael Lundin makes a nice throw and Van Tol somehow brings in the catch with a defender all over him.
HM: Game changing INT for Mayer – Pierre’s Jacob Mayer
The second and final honorable mention goes to Pierre’s Jacob Mayer. The game is tied and Tea Area is looking for a lead when Mayer somehow picks off the pass and gets a foot inbounds, giving the Governors the ball late.
#5: Zabel goes over a defender – Pierre’s Jett Zabel
The fifth best play of the week features a great catch. Pierre’s Lincoln Kienholz delivers a pass downfield and Jett Zabel makes the catch over a defender and then takes it in for the touchdown. That helped get the Govs within a score in the 11AA state title game.
#4: A fantastic snag for Foxley – Platte-Geddes’ Joey Foxley
Checking in at number four is a great throw and catch from Platte-Geddes’ Dawson Hoffman to Joey Foxley. Foxley somehow makes the grab in double coverage, while getting two feet inbounds. He would help the Black Panthers claim the 9AA state crown.
#3: Peterson for the win – Pierre’s Cole Peterson
The third best play of the week begins a theme of walk of scores. Pierre and Tea Area are tied at 27 with seconds to play, when kicker Cole Peterson splits the uprights from 40 yards out to give the Governors their fifth straight state championship.
#2: A pick six for Pica; DRSM wins 9B crown – Dell Rapids St. Mary’s John Pica
The runner-up play of the week comes from Dell Rapids’ St. Mary’s John Pica who steps in front of a pass and grabs the interception. He would then break two tackles on his way to a pick six touchdown. That effort would lead the Cardinals to a state title win with a walk-off two point conversion from CJ Smith to Gabriel Lindeman.
#1: USD wins with the Hail Mary – USD’s Carson Camp to Jeremiah Webb
The top play of the week comes from the final play of the SDSU vs. USD football game.
