Madison player runs into goal post


The first thing that was surprising to me about this video was the final score. Yorktown beat Madison 42-0 last weekend? I've sort of been out of touch with local high school football the last couple of years, but that's not a score I would have expected. After all, Madison has beaten Yorktown four of the last times they played.

"Madison has just had our number," Yorktown Coach Bruce Hanson told the Sun Gazette.

The second thing that was surprising was the player fielding the kickoff and then crashing into his own goal post.

Apparently this also made SportsCenter.

I don't remember. Are high school goalposts within the field of play? If not, if you field a kickoff in play and run out of the back of the end zone, that's a safety right? Double FAIL if so.

To elpando: When the ball breaks the plane of the receiver's goal line, the ball is dead and is a touchback. Receiver's ball at their own 20 yard line.
