Sweet Play of the Week: Americas stuns Eastwood with late trick play

Americas wins Play of the Week

The Americas football team is off to a 1-0 start in 2018 thanks in large part to a late trick play that helped them beat Eastwood in week one. 

The Trail Blazers defeated the Troopers 39-37 Friday despite trailing much of the second half. 

Americas pulled out a perfectly-executed hook-and-ladder with 11 seconds to go to take the lead for good. 

Quarterback Joaquin Sandoval hit receiver Julian Hinojos on a quick route while running back Aaron Dumas seemingly appeared out of nowhere and took a pitch from Hinojos into the end zone.  

It was a brave decision to use the trick play in that situation, but it paid off in the end for Americas.

Americas next plays Midland Christian at 4:00 p.m. Friday at the SAC.
