Kentucky football commit bypasses easy touchdown by handing off to his offensive lineman

Jakob Dixon could have cruised into the end zone for Pleasure Ridge Park, but he gave the last few yards of glory to Nolan Haley

Love was in the air for offensive linemen during Friday night football this week.

In Missouri, the pancake chain and syrup shots came out for the big boys on a St. Louis squad, and one state to the east, a star wide receiver gave all glory to one of his blockers.

Pleasure Ridge Park (Kentucky) beat Doss 56-0, and through two games the Panthers have outscored their opponents 114-0.

Dixon caught 33 passes for 663 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior last season.
