This week’s high school games involved some big plays in late-season or playoff games, including a great punt return, an incredible one-handed interception, and a special touchdown for a Colorado senior.

Woodbridge’s Antwain Holden is special in the open field. Friday, Holden took a 76-yard punt back for a touchdown score after he juked and evaded most of the opposing defense. By the time he reaches the 30-yard line, Holden is free to waltz in the endzone.

Deep passes down the field are hard enough for receivers to catch, but defensive back Robert Daniel Jr. of Oak Park has no difficulty doing so. The DB caught a rocket pass thrown for a pick and contorts his body in a near back-breaking effort. It almost looks painful to watch this awe-inspiring interception. But Daniel Jr. appears fine after completing the catch. They would go on to win the playoff game against Detroit Jesuit, 26-17

Sometimes the plays made on the field are more important than what’s reflected in the box score. When Prairie View took on Cherry Creek this weekend, both sides cheered on PV’s senior Patrick Mckinney on this TD play. The super senior has cerebral palsy but hopes to remain in football as a coach someday.
