When all else fails, close your eyes and heave a prayer behind your back. That’s exactly what one high school quarterback did as he was being brought to the ground, and he came away with one ridiculous highlight.

Sportress of Blogitude spots this video that should have jaws resting comfortably on the ground:

During a game between the Ravenna (Ohio) Ravens and the Field (Ohio) Falcons, Ravens senior quarterback Tate Bennett was having an abysmal game. Having already been picked off twice by the Falcons, Bennett rebounded late in the game, engineering a lengthy drive with the team trailing 14-9. Facing a 4th-and-4 from the Field’s 7-yard-line and less than a minute remaining, Bennett saved his best display of clutch heroics for last.

Are you kidding me? Not only does our hero save the day, but it comes after having what looks to be one horrible game.

The play puts Ravenna up 15-14, making Bennett something of a magician, pulling a win out of thin air.

To pull it off, he had to do what every beaming bride does with the bouquet, lofting the ball behind his head as if it was a bunch of flowers.

I guess that means one lucky receiver is due some congratulations on future nuptials. Although, I am not sure what the football equivalent of this masterful reception should be.

Just remember, if you are going down, just chuck the ball anywhere and good things happen. This does not apply to Mike Vick or Tony Romo. Sorry, guys.
