I got this today from a blog I frequent and it is a pretty cool story.   John MacArthur is a pastor from California that I respect and listen to on the radio and read his books (see “Six Degrees of Separation” from my January archives).  The radio station is a huge Clear Channel talk station in Southern California.  The rest of this post is from that blog:

Some facts about this story before you listen:

  1. Johnny MacArthur is John MacArthur’s eldest grandson. He’s a high-school senior this year and a scratch golfer with a full-ride golf scholarship to Pepperdine next year.
  2. Johnny is a senior, playing football for the first time in his high-school career. Of course, many well-meaning friends and conservative grown-ups advised him not to go out for football because of the risk of an injury that could jeopardize his scholarship. He tried out and made the team anyway.
  3. Hart and Canyon High Schools have one of the fiercest rivalries ever in US high-school football. Johnny plays for Hart High School. Canyon was last year’s state champ in football.
  4. There was a terrible truck accident that occurred in the Newhall Pass on I-5 Friday night.truckcrash.jpg

Listen to that clip first (and stay with it all the way to the end), lest the ending be spoiled for you. But then here’s a video of the final moments of the game.
