High School Team Runs Fake-Spike Play for Game-Winning Touchdown [Video]

One Georgia high school football team broke out some trickery to start its season on the right foot this past weekend.

The North Gwinnett Bulldogs were trailing the top-ranked McEachern Indians with nine seconds remaining in their season-opener when they dialed up the fake-spike play.

Bulldogs quarterback John Urzua took the snap, pump-faked the spike and found Kyle Knudsen for the touchdown. It was Urzua’s seventh touchdown pass of the game, and it handed North Gwinnett a 52-49 victory.

In a game that featured seven lead changes, four of which came in the final seven minutes, it was a fitting end to an exciting high school shootout.

Maurice Jones-Drew Made “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” Gesture Following Touchdown Run Against Packers [Video]

Maurice Jones-Drew ripped off a 40-yard touchdown during Friday night’s exhibition game against the Packers in Green Bay. When the Oakland running back reached the endzone, he briefly bowed his head and raised his hands. The “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” pose has been used by protesters across the country after unarmed teenager Mike Brown was shot and killed by police in Ferguson, Mo. on August 9.

Earlier this week members of the Washington secondary did the pose walking out to the field before their exhibition game against Cleveland.

Dwayne Bowe Suspended 1 Game for Marijuana Arrest, Will Miss Chiefs Home Opener

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is going to the miss the team’s season opener against the Tennessee Titans due to a one game suspension related to an arrest last year.

Bowe, who is eligible to practice with the Chiefs, and can still play in the teams three remaining preseason games, including Sunday night’s contest against the Panthers in Charlotte. The Kansas City wide-receiver provided a statement through the NFL Players Association:

“I am extremely sorry that I can’t be on the field for the first game of the 2014 season because I made an error in judgment,” Bowe said in a statement. “I take responsibility for my mistake, and it will not happen again. I hope that my teammates, coaches and Chiefs fans accept my sincere apology. “I will be supporting my teammates in Week 1, and I cannot wait to get back on the field to help us win in Week 2 and beyond as we work towards our goal of winning the Super Bowl.”

Bowe was arrested in November by police in Riverside, Missouri, for possession of marijuana.

He pleaded guilty in April to lesser charges of littering and defective equipment. The marijuana charge was dismissed. The passenger in Bowe’s car the night of the arrest told police the marijuana belonged to him and that Bowe did not know it was in the car.

The wideout is coming off a down season that seen him catch just 57 passes for under 700 yards and five touchdowns. It was the worst statistical season of his career.

Bowe also was suspended without pay for four games in 2009 after violating the league’s policy against performance-enhancing substances.

Edward Sarafin: Arizona State Offensive Lineman Announces He’s Gay

Edward Sarafin, a back-up offensive lineman for Arizona State, has announced he’s gay in an interview with Compete. He told his teammates last Spring. “It was really personal to me, and it benefitted my peace of mind greatly,” Serafin said. He plans to earn his master’s degree and become a neurologist.

A fifth-year senior, Sarafin has spent most of his career at Arizona State working on the scout team. He is yet to enter a game as an offensive lineman, largely providing depth at the center position and working occasionally on special teams. Listed at 6’6″ and 320 pounds, he is one of the most physically imposing offensive linemen in the Pac-12.

As CFT posits, the time will come sooner than later that the sexual preferences of professional and amateur athletes will cease to be news.

I’m taking a shot in the dark here, but I assume this guys is drunk.

He seems like he has had a few to many drinks, slightly agitated, and now angry since a handy taser from Arrowhead security probably made him crap himself.

Surrounding fans had zero sympathy for their fellow Chiefs brethren which means he was probably being a dick for at least a quarter. Listen as other spectators yell “Don’t Tase Me Bro”.
