Kansas DB intercepts a snap, returns it for TD to spark rivalry win

Prep Rally

Ever seen a snap intercepted and returned for a touchdown? Prep Rally hadn't until Wednesday, when the highlight you see below from a game between Dodge City (Kan.) High and Garden City (Kan.) High was brought to light.

It's hard to explain precisely what led to this rather surprising Dodge City touchdown, though it appears that Garden City quarterback Mason Temple thought he was supposed to receive a shotgun snap. Instead, Garden City center Mitch Morris provided a close snap, which was sent spiraling up toward the heavens with no one to grab it.

That's where Dodge City wide receiver and defensive back Immanuel Galloway jumped in, grabbing the loose football and scrambling into the open field for one of the easiest and most bizarre touchdowns of the season.

"I just wanted to win," Galloway told the Dodge Globe about his surprising defensive score. "We had to bring it home for the seniors and we wanted to win at home. I just thought that I had to get this and score on this. This could be a game-changer and I was surprised. All I was thinking was 'I'm getting this.'"

He did get the ball, and Dodge City eventually got a heated, 24-20 victory to reclaim the "Hatchet Game," as the rivalry between the two schools is called.

Just think: That Dodge City victory never would have happened without the interception of a snap, which certainly isn't the kind of play a team works on in practice.
