Midland Lee High School kicker Luis Aranda used the 12th man last Friday. That man happened to be an official.
Aranda absolutely drills a line-drive kick at the referee on PAT. The ball pings the referee in the head and clips the crossbar, but it still goes through the uprights. Based on the angle shown in the video, it seems likely that the kick would have failed if it hadn't hit the ref's head and ramped up.
This is a change of pace from this month's viral clip of two Texas high school safeties charging a defenseless official. Friday Night Lights can still be fun.
This could not happen on the NFL's new 32-yard PAT, given the trajectory of kicks from such a distance.
Midland Lee, formerly called Robert E. Lee High School, is the alma mater of NFL players Cedric Benson, Ryan Tucker, Rex Tucker, Junior Miller and Eric Winston. First Lady Laura Bush and actor Tommy Lee Jones are also alums.
Midland Lee defeated El Dorado (El Paso), 35-16, to move to 2-2 on the season. The Rebels play Cooper (Abilene) this Friday, and after a bye week, they travel to Odessa for a showdown with the rival Permian Panthers (Friday Night Lights).
