Possibly the Greatest Ever HS Game Ending

Recommended Posts


Good ending, but that was just a kickoff return for a touchdown.

I think the ending for the 98 Soul Bowl between Northwestern and Jackson or the ending of the State Championship game between Northwestern and Seminole were far more exciting.

88 was a baller... 

...#88...At Plano East Sr. High School, Terence Green was All-District 11-5A, All-State District 11-5A, Hall of Honor 2007 Inductee, and played a key role in the infamous "Greatest High School Football Comeback That Never Was" 1994 Plano East vs Tyler John Tyler game. Terence then attended Tyler Junior College from 1995- 1997 where he was First Team All-Conference Receiver and Honorable Mention Kick/Punt Returner. In 1997-1999 Terence completed his bachelor's degree at Texas Wesleyan University where he also played baseball and received the 1998 MVP Award. After college, Terence went on to play for the Ozark Mountain Ducks and was the 2000 Rookie of the Year Runner Up and 2003 Central Baseball League AllStar. He was traded in 2004 to the Fort Worth Cats where he was Team Captain, 2005 Central Baseball League All-Star, and led Central Baseball League in stolen bases in 2005 and 2006. Terence also helped lead the team to become the 2005 Central Baseball League Champions, 2006 American Association League Champions, and the 2007 American Association League Champions. Terence played 8 years of professional baseball.

Green had never kicked an onside kick prior to this game.  Notice how he toe-punched the ball rather than hit it soccer style.

    • The Indianapolis Colts have been sponsoring the Indiana high school football playoffs for the past 10 years and the finals are played at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Their 6 state final games typically average about 7000 attendees per game.   Attendance at our 8 finals in Florida typically average less than 4000 per game.   http://www.maxpreps.com/news/7i8wgZirhkOi1psIZp8qkA/ihsaa-football-brackets,-stat-leaderboards-and-rankings.htm As you'll see from their website, the Colts are very involved with youth and high school football in the community.  I've looked on the websites for the Dolphins, Jaguars and Bucs and don't see anything like this.  It's disappointing we have 3 pro teams in the hs football hotbed of Florida yet the game doesn't seem to get as much support as a state with 1 pro team and a lot less hs players/teams.  https://www.colts.com/community/highschoolfootball/
    • Hopefully we beat Vero this year, I’ll be at that game without a doubt. Is Columbia playing you guys next year?
    • Is there a really that much of a difference once you are in the 1000s range? I mean these teams are playing completely different in completely states with probably very little overlap. Promoters of high school football here in Florida have tried some of the marquee match-ups with 2-3 games on a Saturday. Stadiums don't get filled. The biggest shame is that with 3 professional football teams in the state (4 if you want to count the Orlando Apollos), that more isn't done in the community to promote football as a whole. The NFL should be requiring empty stadiums to be used early in the season for big Saturday promotion of games. Make the games free. 

      Imagine 2 games on a Friday Night and 3 games on a Saturday at TIAA Field (Jax), Raymond James (Tampa), and Hard Rock Hotel (Miami) with 10 of the biggest teams in the areas or criss cross areas. Imagine a Trinity Christian facing off against Mandarin in the night time game, or Miami Northwestern vs Miami Central, or Plant vs Lakeland. Needless to say, professional sports sometimes stink at being ambassadors of the game on a community level. 
    • Ouch!   Not sure I'd want to be sitting at that dinner table right now.  
    • Would that be Jesse Hester (FSU) ?  If so, I remember him well.....great ball player
