High school player leveled on hit, helmet goes flying (Video)
Take a look at this massive hit from a Kansas 8-man high school football game. MaxPreps posted this and says it’s Mekhai Bates of Hill City in Kansas who laid the wood on that lethal hit. The team’s running back, Gabe Hamel, ran to the right initially but reversed field and cut back, leading to the defenders changing direction to chase him. The result was Bates catching an opposing player offguard in a punt return-like block. Dude hit his opponent so hard the kid’s helmet popped off.
I’m not sure who the opposing team was, but Hill City’s most recent game came was a 44-30 loss to Quinter.
