ORLANDO, Fla. - Athletes who can throw a football 50 yards while scrambling away from violent defensive linemen have a good chance to win some awards.
Olympia High School quarterback Joe Milton did that in October, winning WFTV's Football Friday Night on 9 Precision Play of the Month Award.
Milton, who has committed to play for the University of Michigan in college, completed a touchdown pass where the ball traveled 57 yards through the air.
The incredible throw was even more satisfying for Titans fans because it came against their nearby rival Dr. Phillips High School. The Panthers won the game but Milton and the Titans still qualified for the playoffs by winning their final two games of the year.
