Amarion Tyson's diving interception named high school football National Play of the Week (Nov. 10-12)

The Picayune (Mississippi) linebacker never gave up on a play that looked like it'd be a reception

The SBLive Sports staff watched a whole bunch of high school football highlights from across the nation during the week of Nov. 10-12 and then picked our top 10.

Our readers had seven days to choose their favorite, and a diving interception by Picayune (Mississippi) linebacker Amarion Tyson narrowly came out on top.

On a play that looked like it would go for an easy reception, the ball bounced off the receiver and looked like an incompletion. But Tyson was there to dive and grab the ball before it hit the turf, and then he and his team celebrated accordingly.

The play went back and forth all week against an Oklahoma highlight but finished with 21,633 votes (52.1%), edging out a 98-yard pick-six by McAlester (Oklahoma) defensive back Chaz Bradley, which earned 19,729 votes (47.6%).
