There is certainly an art to the onside kick in the game of football. It takes many a practice to get the art form of spinning the ball correctly down, let alone executing it in a game.
For one high school kicker, there is no need for the fancy. Instead, Adrian Medina of Kelly Catholic went a much more direct route — nailing an unsuspecting opponent directly in the head and allowing his team to pick up the ball after that.
Before the player or opposing team knew what hit them, Kelly Catholic saw the ball bounce right back to the original line of scrimmage and in to the waiting arms of one of Medina’s teammates.
We’re guessing this scenario could play out 100 more times and never be duplicated for the simple fact of geometry and physics at play here.
