You can watch from the beginning or skip to about 1:30.

Why would you even have someone back to return a missed FG when you are up by 2 on the final play of the game.

Maybe to stop a potential fake? It was a 40-plus yard kick in a high school game.
good call- I was wondering about that.

Definitely a boneheaded play by the kid, and a good move by the refs on not blowing the whistle right away at the end of the game.

I feel terrible for the kid, but I wonder if the coach is partly to blame. If he sent them to the end zone to prevent a fake, he better have told them not to catch the ball if the kick was short. Who knows what happened, but I feel really bad for that kid.

thats the coaches fault....why would you put kids back there to field a field goal in the first place....i understand worrying about the fake but you dont drop kids back in a field goal defense if you think they are going to fake it on the last play
