High school team’s wedding bouquet two-point conversion is awesome (Video)

Tumwater High School in Washington is receiving attention for an incredible two-point conversion they made last week, and it looks like they’ve coined a new play in the process.

Tumwater was facing No. 1-ranked Capital High School of Olympia and scored with under three minutes left to make it 21-19. They decided to go for two to tie the game, and the result was the spectacular — and improbable — play you see above.

Quarterback Jayden Croft tossed the ball over his head with two hands, much like the way a bride throws her bouquet, and it was caught by 6’5″ receiver Jaimie Bryant (a Washington commit), who also caught the touchdown pass. The play was termed a “wedding bouquet” play by Deadspin after it worked out perfectly, leading to a tie game and double-OT win for Tumwater 35-28.

“Jaimie was awesome,” coach Sid Otton told The Olympian. “If you get (two-point conversion play) wrong, you’re just a dumb coach, which I can take. But if you get it right, it’s such a big momentum changer.”

And now he looks like a genius.
