I hope that this isn't a repost but oh well, if it is then its a good repost:

"Thamail Morgan took the kickoff and headed up the field.


He was at the 20 ... 30 ... 40

He had been avoiding, dodging or just simply running through tacklers on the way. Football always had come easily for Morgan. This game was no different. By the time he hit midfield, only open space was ahead of him. The two-time Arkansas all-state selection was headed for a touchdown.
40 ... 30 ... 20

He glanced at the clock and saw the final seconds ticking away. He realized his team, Cave City, was on the way to a victory over Yellville-Summit, comfortably ahead, 34-16. He also realized two other things: This wasn't an ordinary game. And he wasn't the same Thamail Morgan. When he reached the 2, he stopped. He took a few steps back and took a knee at the 5-yard line."

I'm not impressed by this story. Some kid dies in a car wreck, his high school decides to play, and the opposition decides to take a knee instead of tacking on 7 points at the end.

Wow, what a hero! :rolleyes:

Yeah. I mean, if the kid had instead scored a touchdown, and then danced all over the end zone that woulda been cool. And then maybe he coulda started a 2399-page thread about trying to f**k strange chicks he met online in ordert to bust his way-overripe cherry. That would've been much better than what he did.

You know what would make this a great story? You know what would make this a great story? If the guy got kicked off the football team because he put the big pile of brush in the road. And then he made up for it by taking a knee at the five. That kind of happy ending is what makes a great movie.

Maybe I am overlooking something, but wouldn't the classy thing have been to fucking kneel it when he caught the kick?

Kinda seems a little silly to fawn praise over this kid for running 98 yards, then going, "Oh, nevermind." The classy gesture would to have been to let the kick roll out for a touchback then kneel the game out.

This kid probably would have run it in without thinking if his teammates hadn't yelled for him to stop. But I guess thats just speculation.

I respect the story altogether, but like, really, wtf. Just kneel it when you catch it. The game is already over.

He's a kid. He's on a football field. He did what comes naturally to him, and it took a few seconds for him to figure it out. Just because his noble act came late doesn't mean it was not valid.

That was the first thought that came to my mind.... but then again, I am pretty cynical. My thought was that he merely showed that he could have and then didn't.... so he could have the best of both worlds.

But, that is is coming from sitting at my desk and reading the story...knowing what happened and being 35.

If i am 17 years old, still playing football and returning a kickoff.... I am just not sure that I would think like that.

I think he should be commended, not only for not scoring, but more importantly.... for taking responsibility for his actions that got him suspended and working to be a better person.

Just take it for what it is... it was a nice gesture. The kid didn't immediately stand up and say "now, everyone praise me for this grand gesture". The media decided to run with a nice story. That's it.

And, I don't know why anyone is surprised with Claythan's comment... the guy is a jackass. The guy adds very little value to those around him, he hasn't yet found his purpose in life... so, until he does, he'll continue to pull this BS. Sometimes I pity him, but more often I just roll my eyes.

I disagree. Any time someone does something selfless, it's article-worthy. Any time a young person does it, it's even more so, since they get a rap for being even more self-centered and clueless than adults (unfairly-so, IMO, since a lot of adults suck donkey balls...).

Right, I am not faulting the kid for the story growing legs and walking to the front of Yahoo's website. I acknowledge the fact that he didn't score when he could have. And that is nice. It is also touching to hear is trying to make something of himself after making a big mistake, whatever it was. And it was very sad to hear about the kid dying in the prime of his young life.

My only point is that if you are going to do something nice, do it all the way. It almost reminded me of the guy you hated in college/high school who would cock back his arm to swing on you, then say," just kidding" when he didn't hit you.

But whatever. This kid is troubled, or was, and hopefully he recognizes that good can be had from doing nice things, and he stays on the right track.

So this kid, instead of running out the clock runs 98 yards to "almost score" but decides at the 2 YL that he shouldn't after his teammates yell at him is story worthy?

I think it was rather humiliating for the other team for him to take a knee like they couldn't tackle him. He should have turned around and tried to run back to the other goal line, and then if he made it, turned around again and kept doing it until someone tackled him. Kind of like cricket. That would've been fun and it would've let the other team eventually tackle him.

I was thinking running backwards for a safety would have been appropriate, but that's good, too.

Actually, to make them feel like they accomplished something he should have fumbled the ball. In the huddle he would have discussed this with his teammates, telling them to blow tackle after tackle.

Perhaps before the play they should've asked the other team if they had a Downs Syndrome kid who hadn't been getting much playing time. You might as well get it all done at once.
