It happened almost in slow motion.
Moments after Woodford County ran in its first touchdown, freshman Mason Fish was in the backfield, waiting to receive the ensuing kickoff.
Fish churned toward the Henry County 35-yard line, on what appeared to be a solid run. Then, with a Yellowjacket wrapped around his waist, it happened... the ball popped out, stripped by the enemy. This, after a week of practices that no doubt focused on protecting the football at all costs.
