Former Kalamazoo Central wide receiver Phillip Blanks caught a 30 yard touchdown pass on the final play of the game, to beat arch-rival Loy Norrix in 2009.

For the last 11 years that catch was by far the biggest in his life. Until Friday, July 3, 2020 when the retired U.S. Marine made a diving catch of a 3-year-old boy who was dropped from the balcony of a burning, third floor apartment in Phoenix, Arizona.
