RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Rain couldn't wash away Friday's high school football schedule, and that means it also couldn't stop us from nominating three wonderful plays to be the NBC12 Play of the Week.

We start in the Dominion District with what was a scoreless game between L.C. Bird and James River until Anthony Harris threw up a wet ball that Brandon Williams came down with for a 51-yard touchdown to make it 7-0 Skyhawks.

That got Bird going as they went on to remain undefeated with a 20-7 win.

Play number two shows what can happen when the ball's all wet -- Dinwiddie's Chris Hall fumbles the snap, picks it up, and gets rocked by Thomas Dale's Airek Green, creating another fumble.

The Knights would recover the football, and they'd also take it to the Generals 35-0.

Our third play also comes from the Dinwiddie vs Thomas Dale game, where Demetrick Jackson's getting the nod not so much for this nice run to the outside, but for his overall performance as he ran for 290 yards on 37 carries in the Knights' 35-0 win over Dinwiddie.
