1. BRAUGHT FAKE PUNT (Week 6)
Down a touchdown against Ardmore, with the offense sputtering on its first two drives, the Duncan Demons were in need of a big play. On fourth-and-one just inside Tiger territory the Demons lined up to go for it, tried to draw Ardmore offsides and eventually had to call a timeout. During that timeout, head coach Jim Holloway decided to run one of their “specials.” Jack Braught stood ready in punt formation, caught the long snap and stepped forward as if to kick the ball. He paused and then held the ball out in front as Connor Kelly swept around in front of him. Braught faked the handoff, tucked it away and sprinted to his left. He crossed the first-down marker as he made his way to the sideline, looking for much more than a first down. He changed his speed to dodge defenders, slipped through an arm tackle and went all 46 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at 7-all midway through the second quarter in a game Duncan went on to win 28-14.
