High School Football Quarterback Scores Amazing Touchdown (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Quarterback Ross Bowers led Bothell High School to 4A state football title on Saturday night with a 24-14 win over Chiawana High School in Tacoma, Washington.

The most dramatic play of the game was in the third quarter when Bowers ran for a 10-year touchdown in the Tacoma Dome (video below).

Bowers dove into the end zone, bounced off some defenders and flipped onto his feet for the touchdown.

“I saw an opening and I took it,” Bowers told the Seattle Times. “Nothing was going to keep me out of the end zone and I happened to land on my feet after. It was an awesome play for me because it was my last impact on a football game in high school, and I think I’ll remember that one for a while.”

Bowers also completed 17 of 19 passes for 216 yards.

His mother is a gymnastics coach at the University of Washington.

"He spends hours on the trampoline and that's what I just saw, trampoline work right there," Bothell head coach Tom Bainter told King5.com.

Bothell went 14-0 for the season. Saturday's win was the school's first state football championship.

"I wanted it so badly for our kids," added Bainter. "I wanted it for the kids who didn't get it the last time we were here. I wanted it for our community because our community is so great. And we got it."
