R.J. Lewis is a high school football analyst in Atlanta.  Last weekend he announced a game between Douglass and Rockmart and made a bold prediction with Douglass on defense and trailing 54-0.  He predicted Douglass would score a defensive touchdown.

"The Douglass Astros will get on the board defensively… you gotta step out on that limb.  A bobbled snap, scoop it in for the score, it could happen."

Lo and behold, that's exactly what happened, as on the very next play Douglass recovered a fumble, returning it for their only touchdown of the game.  Now, we've seen our share of called announcing shots before, but none in favor of a team trailing by 54 points in the third quarter.  That's impressive.  Finally, after all these years, Slyvia Browne may have some competition.
