Usually faking an injury in any sport is frowned upon- but not in this case. Keanon Lowe, a sophomore with 22 catches and 3 TDs this year, faked an injury in order to let one of his teammates play for him.

Lowe’s backup, Dane Ebanez, 5’9” and 180lbs, came onto the field and took his position. Ebanez doesn’t have a scholarship and is $70,000 in debt.

Ebanez, from Alaska, is apparently not the most talented football player, but is a very hard worker and loved by his teammates. He is graduating in the spring- meaning that the Fiesta Bowl was his last game.

Thanks to his fellow teammates, he had a chance to finally play in a bowl game. The fake injury happened with 2:30 left in the game- Oregon up 35-17.
