High school player scores off epic front-flip foul throw-in

Published 1 Comments

Michael Del Lewis made a name for himself yesterday when he provided one of the most insane goals you will ever see, according to reports

Don't worry, you can admit it, who in the world is Michael Del Lewis? Well, it turns out he is a 16-year-old high school soccer player for McKinney Boyd HS. Pretty standard, but his speciality is epic throw-ins.

Not just any kind of throw-ins, no, front-flip throw-ins. This guy is talented that's for sure. The majority of us can't even do a front-flip without breaking limbs let alone execute one to perfection with a ball in hand and then subsequently send said ball over 50 yards.

Incredible skills

Then lets add the most amazing part of what he achieved this week, he did all that and scored a spectacular goal from the throw-in. VIEW ON THIS LINK. Well, I know what you're thinking, there was obviously a mistake in there, with the high school goalkeeper palming the 50+ yard throw-in into the night.

But let's dampen the excitement by saying there are two clear things wrong with this epic goal. Number one is that the goal is clearly not Michael Del Lewis's, it's the goalkeeper's, who unfortunately committed an own-goal in the incident.

Should this goal have stood?

And the second issue with the goal is that it probably shouldn't have been allowed. There has certainly been a party online regarding this goal, with a Vine of it getting viewed over 3.5 million times at the time of writing.

But take a look on MaxPreps on the link above where the video originated from and decide whether or not you think the goal should have been disallowed for a foul throw. It certainly looks like he let go of the ball above his head and not behind his neck when you slow it down.

Epic goal but maybe it should have been an epic fail.
