Play of the Year? Whittle’s lateral to Bunch


FULTON – Caleb Whittle and Russell Bunch stole the show Friday in No. 1 large school Itawamba AHS’ 43-36 win over No. 2 small school Aberdeen.

Whittle caught the game-winning TD and it wasn’t even the play of the game. This was.

With Itawamba (4-0) trailing 20-14 and less than 10 seconds left in the first half, 2016 QB Vijay Miller placed a perfect heave into double coverage to Whittle. Whittle came down with the ball and while being tackled as the clock expired, pitched to trailing tight end Russell Bunch, who went the final 13 yards of the 65-yard scoring play.

“Caleb said Russell was screaming, ‘Throw it, throw it, throw it,'” IAHS coach Clint Hoots said.

Here is the play OL coach Zane Thomas just sent me.
