Playoff action brings out the best in teams and this week fans across the country were witness to some stunning, clutch plays.
Rockdale (Texas) Defensive Back Robs Late Score With One-Handed Interception
— ⛵️ (@KingCrawford_) November 19, 2016
Junior cornerback Jaqualyn Crawford made a difficult game-clinching play look like a video game feat Friday for Rockdale High. When Coldspring-Oakhurst tried for a desperation heave to tie the game late, Crawford came down with the Hail Mary — with a single hand. It doesn’t get much more clutch than that.

It takes a lot of gumption to proclaim that you have the best spin move in the district, but Spring Westfield’s Rayshawn James may have a point. On Westfield’s first scoring drive against Stony Point, James takes a 19-yard rushing play to the house after he spins away from defenders. His spin was so effective, it seemed like James knew he’d score if he got through the spin successfully.
Dripping Springs (Texas) Receiver Comes Down with Jump Ball to Win in Waning Seconds

This is why you play receiver in football. In the final moments of a contest, with the game on the line, usually it is a receiver that comes up with a big play. For Dripping Springs this weekend, wideout Keith Michhart couldn’t have come up with a bigger catch. Facing a fourth down, trailing 11-6 against Angleton, Dripping Springs quarterback Reese Johnson rolls to his right and launches a deep pass toward Michhart. Somehow, he high points the ball and manages to secure the catch with a defender draped on him.
Maine Central Institute Wins Title on Botched Field Goal Snap

A little luck rarely hurt anyone. If it’s on your side, luck can be the biggest determinant in a game. In the final minutes of Maine Central Institute’s state championship game against Lisbon (Maine), MCI attempted a 37-yard field goal to take the lead after a 14-all tie. But the snap was fumbled, and Central’s Eli Brussell scooped the ball up and ran it home for a shocking championship-winning touchdown.
