LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) – Blink and you may have missed how St. Michael fullback Zach McLochlin was able to score so easily against rival school St. Patrick.
“I probably could have walked into the end zone,” the nine-year-old says.
He’s not kidding.
Now to be fair, his team had run the play a couple of times this season. But this time it worked. And it worked well.
As his team went to the line, McLochlin crept behind his offensive line and ducked. The defense had no idea he was even there. He quietly took a direct snap and then did nothing.
His quarterback began going left. So did his offensive line. So did the defense. When the dust settled, no one was near the fullback who quietly still had the ball. As the video evidence clearly shows, McLochlin indeed could have walked into the end zone.
The play was designed by head coach Rob Owen, who guided the St. Michael Knights to a 7-1 record this year.
“As a coach, I never get excited but in this situation, I was excited as I could be,” said Owen
