High School Kicker Nails Referee in Face During PAT
Being a high school football referee in Texas is a pretty hazardous job.
You probably already know the ugly story involving two players who targeted a referee during a game. Now comes this slightly less serious incident in which kicker Luis Aranda of Midland Lee High School attempts an extra point during a recent game, only to drill the ball off a referee’s face before it goes over the crossbar.
Referees (and their faces) are in the field of play, so the PAT did count.
They’ve been tackled and they’ve been kicked with a ball. What’s next? Getting an offensive lineman to shove one into a defender so the running back can scamper into the end zone?
Check out the kick in its entirety below.
