Top 10 Games of 2015-16: #1: Highland Springs Uses Hook and Lateral To Defeat Hermitage

Our top game of the 2015-16 high school sports season was, in our view, a clear-cut choice.

And, just like our #2 game released yesterday, the first portion bore no resemblance whatsoever to a classic confrontation. In fact, the first half of the 5A State Football Quarterfinal between Highland Springs and Hermitage on November 28th was a one-sided affair, as the Springers, in front of a huge holiday weekend crowd, built a 35-7 lead.

But the vast majority of the second half belonged to the Panthers, who scrapped and clawed their way back, tying the game at 35-35. But the Springers, opting not to play it conservatively when they got the football with less than two minutes to play, going on a drive for the ages that included some trickery, and a play from, not the star receivers, but from James Jackson, who made Highland Springs' version of "The Catch" with 9.2 seconds left for the winning score.
