It seems like every week we find different high school football clips claiming to be the best trick play or punt returns in high school history appearing on YouTube.
What you don't tend to see however, is truly brutal sacks and hits on a quarterback. Well we think we have found it. The most bone crushing hit ever delivered on a high school quarterback by a defensive player.
Pass rushers and defensive players in high school tend not to deliver the boom as much as we see in the pros or in college from the likes of Jadeveon Clowney during his time at South Carolina. But step forward Romeo Finley, who has just changed the game of high school highlight tapes forever.
Finley is a four star rated defensive back currently playing for Niceville Senior High School down in the incredibly named Niceville, FL. This hit on the opposing quarterback is the furthest thing from pleasant as you can get. It is downright bone shuddering.
Finley doesn't graduate until 2016 but he already hits like a seasoned college player out there, coming in at over 6ft tall and weighing 211lbs.
- High school player scores epic return TD
- Utah receiver makes calamity play
- Miami commit makes unbelievable catch
The hit was so vicious that the quarterback's helmet ended up five yards down the field, the force of the impact knocking it clean off the guys head. You don't see that kind of force at this level of football, and oh yeah, he's only 16.
Finley is a highly recruited player already in and out of the state of Florida. The 4-star safety has offers already coming in from the Florida Gators, Clemson, Miami and Tennessee among others.
We can't help but feel there will be a few extra scouts at his next game out for Niceville. He is currently rated as the 7th best junior safety in the state of Florida and the 46th best player overall in the region, according to ESPN. He is yet to commit to a school.
