SC State Player Forgets To Take Knee On Kickoff, Throws Ball To Ref, Recovered By Other Team

Even with this year’s College Football only being in it’s third week, we’ve seen some boneheaded plays. This one just made all of those look excusable.

With South Carolina State taking on Clemson today, a State player received a kickoff in his own end zone for a touch-back. Only problem – there was no touch-back because he forgot to take a knee. After tossing the ball in the direction of the ref, it was recovered by Clemson for a touchdown.

You can even see him signalling for the touch back signal wondering when the referee never called it, likely thinking the rules were the same as high school with automatic touch-backs.


This young man has a bright future with the Browns.
