To say that soccer players are some of the best athletes out there would be an understatement. If you don’t believe me, all you have to do is watch this video and you will know exactly what I mean.
On Saturday, Dylan Prichett-Ettner, a player at Columbine High School in Colorado, made an incredible play by flipping over the goalie and scoring a rather easy goal.
However, the goal, as impressive as it was, did not count as he was called offsides.

This was just as impressive as the high school player flipping over another in a game Friday night. It is heartbreaking, however, that the goal didn’t count.
I think I will be okay with high school players making mid-play flips a thing over the next few months.
