Across the country this weekend, high schools trotted out the latest iterations of their football teams in scrimmages for fans and family to watch before the seasons start. Usually, the only noteworthy things to happen at these scrimmages are brief glimpses of a new offense or a new quarterback or whatever.
Not so at Harrison High School in Ohio, where the crowd at a scrimmage witnessed a small plane crash in a gravel field next to the field during the middle of the game.
Hang on, that bears repeating: A plane crashed next to a football field while a game was going on. Video of witnesses’ reactions, which is amazingly not them yelling “HOLY S**T” over and over, is after the jump.
