Imagine running for thirty yards with another person on your back trying to tackle you. That's exactly what Templeton High wide receiver Tobey Isbell did after hauling in a pass from quarterback Alex Elterman in our Friday Night Highlights Week 9 Play of the Week.
It came in the second quarter during the Eagles' 28-14 win at Santa Ynez. Elterman hit Isbell for a 25 yard gain. Isbell took off for the end zone, but had a Santa Ynez defender on him. Isbell kept pumping his legs and driving forward for 10 and 20 yards before a second and third defender joined the pile and finally took him down around the 10 yard line. It was a play for nearly 50 yards with more than half coming as a result of Isbell's strength and determination.
Isbell finished with 140 yards receiving and 1 touchdown.
