Everyone loves a good Hail Mary in football, whether it’s perfectly executed or there’s a few lucky bounces. If it works, it’s one of the most exciting plays in all of football.

The Roy High Royals in Roy, Utah pulled off a pretty nice one Friday night against their rival Fremont Silver Wolves on the final play of the game, defeating them on a last second heave to win 13-12.

Quarterback Tyler Skidmore lined up in the shotgun at the 44 yard line, dropped back and threw a prayer down the field where it bounced off a few defenders and into the hands of wide receiver Justin Weaver for the score.

The touchdown set the Royals up for their third win of the season for an undefeated record and their second straight game of winning on the last play of the game.

If Roy High rings a bell for you, it’s the High School that legendary Bears quarterback Jim McMahon attended before going to BYU and eventually the NFL. The Royals retired his number two seasons ago and he visits the school a few times a year.
