Favre's unbeaten HS team loses on Hail Mary pass

Brett Favre's success as an NFL player carried over to his gig as a high school offensive coordinator until last night.  Favre's unbeaten Oak Grove (Miss.) took on Petal in a battle between two powerhouses on a national cable television station.

Things didn't go so well for for the 5-0 OG squad who couldn't even muster 100 yards of total offense but still had the game in hand when Petal — looking at a fourth-and-17 — scored on a Hail Mary pass to win the game.

The best part of this clip might be the announcers enthusiastic call of the incredible play.  Even more amazing is the fact that there is a Jumbotron on a high school field.

Check out Favre's reaction to the play on Deadspin.
