MIDLAND, Texas — Sometimes you have to do everything possible to help your team win the big game.

A Texas high school football kicker did just that last Friday.

Midland Lee football player Luis Aranda went to kick an extra point during the second quarter, but instead of going straight over the crossbar, the football took a detour.

In the video, posted on YouTube, you can see the ball hit the referee in the head before making it between the posts.

The referees counted the kick and Midland Lee won the game 35-16.

On top of that, the video has gone viral.
