Sample text

Although each team had a chance to go ahead in the final minutes, neither team could manage to score. The game entered overtime. Captains of both teams gathered at midfield for the coin toss. The Steelers called tails, but the coin landed heads up and the Broncos elected to receive the kick. After the Pittsburgh kicker booted the ball deep into the end zone, the Broncos took over on the twenty-yard line. Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy had already told Tim and Demaryius Thomas that they would use the new play if they won the toss.

Frank’s father then attended Penn State University, where he won three varsity letters and was named to Penn State’s all-decade team for the 1950s. He later became the head football coach at Lebanon High School. Like his father, Frank was a talented athlete. Tall and strong, in his junior and senior seasons he was starting quarterback for Cedar Crest High School in Lebanon and played well enough to earn honorable mention as quarterback on the All-State team. He was also selected to play in the “Big 33” football classic, a high school all-star game known as the Super Bowl of high school games.

From his position over the center, Riegels saw the Georgia Tech linemen blocking to the left and he started sliding down the line, fighting off blockers and following the play. As Thomason bounced outside, Riegels began to sprint toward the sideline so he would be in position to make a tackle if Thomason made it around the end. As Thomason reached the line of scrimmage, he shrugged off a California tackler, took a few strides toward the sideline, then turned straight upfield. He held the ball tightly under his left arm and raised his right arm to fend off tacklers.
