Trinity Lateral Miracle

We all know when you’re down and there’s not time to run more than one play, you’ve got three choices. A trick play, a hail Marry, or the lateral plat. Trinity University opted for the latter.

Called the “Miracle in Mississippi” this play happened 6 years ago in the SCAC title game between Trinity University and Millsaps Football.With 39 yards to go the team ran the scripted play they had in their back pocket for the whole season…not. Over the span of almost 2 minutes, with 15 seemingly aimless laterals keeping the play alive, the team drove down the field with no time left and won the championship. What an ending.
