Football: The lesson is to have a backup holder ready

October 3, 2011 |  8:55 pm

When Mission Hills Alemany scored a touchdown late in its game against Dorsey, the Warriors pulled to within 13-12. They needed a conversion kick to tie the game.

But the team's regular holder, quarterback Devon Dunn, was knocked out of the game with a concussion. The Warriors took two timeouts looking for a backup holder.

"We have a backup holder," Coach Dean Herrington said. "We just didn't work with him."

They ended up going for two points and failed.

On Monday, Herrington started working with a backup holder.
