That’s exactly what Will Harrell did Friday night.
Harrell, a junior wide receiver, delivered a catch for the ages late in the third quarter of West Point’s 22-20 win over Oxford Friday night, preventing a costly turnover and giving the Green Wave the opportunity to cash in with a pivotal field goal just four plays later.

Friday night’s loss to Manchester was disappointing for the Oak Hill Academy Raiders, but that did not mean the end of their season or their hopes of getting into the playoffs.
This team has proved its resiliency before in the 2010 season, bouncing back from an 0-4 start to win two in a row, including a conference win over Carroll.
“We still have an opportunity to get into the playoffs,” Gregg said. “But if we’re not going to play with anymore passion than tonight, it’s not going to happen.”

The Carroll Academy Rebels (4-3) have not had a lot of trouble scoring points this season.
Coming off a 46-18 win over Deer Creek, they faced another non-league opponent on Friday, in the Eagles of Hebron Christian (1-6).
The Eagles have had a tough time scoring this season, with 20 being the most they’ve scored in any ball game.
They would get about a third of that on Friday, falling 47-6 to the Rebels, who are brushing up for more conference action.

Raider mistakes seal district loss to Mavs

There’s no doubt that the Manchester Academy Mavericks (1-6; 1-1) were overdue for a win this season. They’d run into some tough love in the first half of the year, and while possession one of the top players in Academy football (Matt Peaster), it was only a matter of time before they exploded for a win.
The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-6; 1-1) were just hoping that explosion would hold off at least one more week, as they traveled to Yazoo City to take on the Mavs on Friday night. They were defeated 32-20.
