“The design of the play is that we we’re going to hit an underneath route and get into the middle of the field and pickup as much as we could. 15 yards hopefully and get into field goal range, because we had one timeout left and we were just really fortunate to be on top,” Jared Fredenburg said. “In my nineteen years of coaching, it’s the first time I’ve been on either side of a walk-off score like that.”
The final play even had a special celebration as Luke Smith, was able to celebrate with his brother Jack, following the final play of the quarterfinal contest.
