Video: White County’s Ashely Lowery hurdles defender on TD run

Well, this is just one of those video clips you’ve got to see. Ashely Lowery, a 6-foot-1, 190- running back/defensive from White County who is committed to Kentucky, hurdles a player during a recent game. I haven’t been able to confirm yet against which team this occurred but the Warriors (2-1) played West Hall this past weekend and won 45-18.

Here’s the video from YouTube.com:

White Co. Radio Guy: Really? Good to know. Any way you can send me the audio. It’d be great to have your call to go with the video!

White Co. Radio Guy: It looked like the official threw a flag on the play. What was the call? Holding? Did the touchdown stand? BTW, you forgot to say “first”. LOL!

haha my bad Crazy Hoops! I think that’s the first time I’ve actually been first on here!

But the call was leaping on Lowery. I was told, however, that it should not have been called. The interpretation of the rule has some officials confused. The leaping rule is there to protect the defender (mostly on field goals), but if a runner propels himself off a defender using his feet, then it should be called. In this case, there was no contact.

Chip…I will try to get the audio. I will get somebody at the station to get it to me tomorrow. Thanks!

Yes a flag was thrown, as unfortunately, the rule is you can’t leave your feet in that manner, it is for the protection of the players as you could imaging what the ramifications could be from striking a young man in the head or neck under those circumstances I too was at the game with my son and it was an amazing display talent..it was similar to the Moreno leap against CMU..although i believe that Ashley went even higher as it appeared in full speed…I don’t know the exact reading of the rulle, but it is rule that is put in place to protect these young men…Ashley has some real talent, i think the dawgs need to take a closer look at him…He has been to Athens and i’m not so sure that if the dawgs offered he would not look at it…

Athough a very athletic move, the National Federation of High School Rules prohibit this.
RULE 2, SECTION 22 HURDLING
Hurdling is an attempt by a player to jump(hurdle) with one or both feet or knees foremost over an opponent who is contacting the ground with no part of his body except one or both feet.
