Vermont football team wins after crazy fumble recovery

Despite being down two points and having its kicker miss a 46-yard field goal as time expired, the Jericho Mount Mansfield high school football team won a game last weekend thanks to one of the craziest, and boneheaded, plays you'll ever see.

To set the scene, Vermont's Jericho Mount Mansfield high school lined up to kick a field goal with 1.3 seconds left in an attempt to win its game over Otter Valley. Two Otter Valley players went back to the endzone to catch the potentially short field goal. And then this:

Even though the ball would have been dead if it fell short of the crossbar, the Otter Valley player caught it, celebrated the impending victory by spiking a live ball and then saw an opposing player scoop it up for the most improbable of wins. The Otter Valley player, Casey Babcock, immediately realized his mistake after dropping the ball, but it was far too late.

Babcock is going to get all the blame here, but what about the coach who placed the two players in the endzone to catch the field goal attempt? The Otters had a two point lead. Once the field goal missed, the game would have been over. There was no reason, or benefit, to send players back to recover a missed attempt.

Since you know the player is going to get crap for the rest of the year, he should get to kick his coach in the junk for telling him to stand in the endzone to catch the ball. What an idiot! (the coach I mean)

Yeah, if the coach told him to stand back there, he should at least make sure he knows the rules.

rofl news guy said "more importantly it's going to be on channel 3" after the teammate said "that's gonna be on youtube"

great effort by the kid for knowing the rules
