Trailing by 4 points with under two minutes to go, Jackson Prep was facing the end of the season. The Patriots drove the field and got down to the MRA 12-yard line in the final seconds. Facing 4th down, Prep saved their season with one dramatic play.
The call was designed to go to the right but when QB Gene Wood rolled that way he saw his first option in the pattern wasn't open. Wood rolled back left, avoided a few defenders and eventually lofted a pass into the corner of the endzone for Parker Caracci. Caracci had slipped behind two defenders and he came down with the ball for the game winning score.
Prep now moves on to defend their title as they'll meet JA this Friday night in the championship game at Mississippi College.
