Bradenton, FL-- The Highschoolsports.net Play of the Week, comes from the Winter Haven-Bradenton Southeast playoff game on Friday.

It was the final play of the game.  Winter Haven had just scored in overtime, and was lining up for the extra point that would tie the game, and send it to a third overtime.

But Southeast's Bobby Wooten rushed through the line, and blocked the kick, ensuring the Seminoles a 21-20 overtime victory.  Bobby is only 5-foot-9, the Seminoles' shortest defensive lineman.  He said he jumped as high as he could, and the ball hit him in the forehead.
