Video: Butler High School pulls off miraculous victory

Do you believe in miracles? Well, duh, of course you do.

Just watch the pigskin dazzler (Is that the Stanford band???) Butler High School pulled off in its 42-41 victory Friday night over Pleasure Ridge Park in Louisville, Ky.

"My only instruction was, 'Whoever fields it first, start throwing it around,' " Butler coach Scott Carmony said. "We hadn't practiced that. You don't practice something that happens once every 25 years."

The video has gone viral and Butler is on the map, right next to Lourdes.

"It's been pretty electric at school," Carmony said. "There's still a lot of buzz in the air. I can't tell you how many e-mails and stuff I've got. ... It was just an incredible series of events."

Other than the down by contact, blatantly obvious forward lateral,the 50 players on the field at once and the excessive celebration of hanging on the goal posts after a TD, the officials didn't miss a thing.

Hey, it's dark, and there five trillion people on the field. Still ... you're right.
