Sackie's blocked punt lifts Central to one-point win

Jadarius Sackie blocked a punt for a safety in the final minute to give the Bobcats a one-point victory.

After losing a 15-point second half lead on Friday night, Central High School trailed Carter by one point with less than 30 seconds left.
 
The Hornets were set to punt the ball back to Central and the Bobcats were preparing to chuck a couple of Hail Mary's into the endzone and hope for a miracle.
 
Then Jadarius Sackie created one for them, busting through the line and leaping through the air to block the punt.
 
Carter recovered in its own endzone for a safety and Central picked up a crazy 43-42 win.
 
"At first coach wanted us to go punt safe but I asked him if I could go block the punt because I saw that they were weak in that hole I was supposed to go through," Sackie told WBIR on Monday.
"He just gave me the go ahead and I did it."
 
"He looked me in the eyes and his other coach and said coach I can go get it," said Central head coach Bryson Rosser. "He was the only one we sent and there would be no one else I would trust rather than him on the field."
 
"I was like, I just gotta go though him, at least get to the personal protector, so I just ran through him and just jumped over dude and blocked the punt," said Sackie.
 
The Bobcats are 2-2 overall this season and 1-1 in region play.
