Georgia fans want Arch Manning — badly

Fans usually do their part to make a recruit feel at home during an unofficial visit, but not many can hold a candle to what some of the Georgia faithful pulled off for Arch Manning over the weekend.
Manning traveled to Athens on Saturday after his junior season debut to take in Georgia’s 40-13 win over South Carolina. Part of Georgia’s rabid fanbase was well aware that the five-star recruit was visiting for the game and sent a clear message that they want him to suit up for Kirby Smart in a couple of years.

Hamilton's QB vomited during the final TD pass of the wild comeback over Bishop Gorman

As if the Hamilton High School (Chandler, Ariz.) comeback victory over Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) couldn’t get any crazier, Huskies quarterback Nicco Marchiol led the comeback while sick. Sick enough that he threw up during game play.
Sick enough that he vomited as the football was being snapped to him on the final touchdown throw of the night, the one that would end up putting the Huskies in position to complete a two-point conversion and complete the 25-24 comeback victory in which they scored 18 points in less than 70 seconds.
And of course they went for the two-point conversion

USA TODAY Super 25 Week 4 Recap: No. 24 Hamilton stages comeback for the ages

High school football season is always one of the craziest times of the year, but it’s going to be tough for anyone to top what No. 24 Hamilton pulled off against No. 7 Bishop Gorman on Friday night.
Hamilton, led by West Virginia commit Nico Marchiol, scored 15 points in the final minute to overcome a 24-7 deficit and shock Bishop Gorman by a final score of 25-24. Hamilton recovered two straight onside kick attempts and a banged-up Marchiol made play after play to lead the Arizona school to one of the craziest comebacks in recent history

WATCH: Pennsylvania high school wins football game on Hail Mary

The lords of the football world answered the prayer that was thrown up by Penn Manor (Millersville, Penn.) Senior High School on Friday night.
A Hail Mary coming off a scramble in the backfield landed in the hands of wide receiver Clark Wagstaff and allowed the Comets walk off with a victory.
With just three seconds left and the ball near midfield, quarterback Eli Warfel took off to his right to escape pressure. Feeling the defensive lineman closing in on him, Warfel spun around and headed to the other side of the field

All-female referee crew works Oregon high school football game

An all-female referee crew made Oregon high school football history last week as the first all-female crew to work a game in the state.
Kim Bly, Rebecca Brisson, Cat Conti, Jeana Fisher, Mary Havril and Amy Pistone officiated Glencoe High School’s 35-0 win over Hillsboro High School last Friday.
“I didn’t really know as a kid that I could do that, so now it’s that whole ‘if you see it, you can do it’ kind of thing,” Brisson told Portland KGW8. “So that’s why we were like, ‘Let’s get out there, let’s show our faces, let’s show other girls that they can do this.’”
Brisson has been an Oregon high school football official for 19 years, but it was Havril’s idea to bring the all-female crew together
