R.J. Lewis, High School Football Announcer, Predicts Touchdown In Douglass-Rockmart Game (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

By Matt Yoder, Awful Announcing

R.J. Lewis is a high school football analyst in Atlanta. Last weekend he announced a game between Douglass and Rockmart and made a bold prediction with Douglass on defense and trailing 54-0. He predicted Douglass would score a defensive touchdown.

"The Douglass Astros will get on the board defensively... you gotta step out on that limb. A bobbled snap, scoop it in for the score, it could happen."

Lo and behold, that's exactly what happened, as on the very next play Douglass recovered a fumble, returning it for their only touchdown of the game. Now, we've seen our share of called announcing shots before, but none in favor of a team trailing by 54 points in the third quarter. That's impressive. Finally, after all these years, Slyvia Browne may have some competition.
