High School football play of the year

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - “We weren’t supposed to lose like this!”

That’s what a bainbridge staffer yelled on the sideline when the Bearcats threw a late interception that set up Warner Robins for a chip shot field goal to win the 5A state championship with 6 seconds to go.

What ensued would be voted as the high school football play of the year.

Warner Robins lined up for a 27-yard attempt at Mercedes Benz Stadium last Tuesday evening.

And it would be Roman Harrison, the Tennessee commit who used his 39-inch vertical to jump the a-gap and get a paw on the football.

The blocked field goal sent the game to overtime.

From there the Bearcats went on to win in a third overtime 47-41.
