Well, here is something that you don’t see every day.

During a recent high school football game in Washington State between Coupeville High School and Kinds High School, there was an onlooker that ran onto the field in the midst of a kickoff return.

Of course, the first thing you would think of is a streaker or a fan that a few too many adult beverages. Nope, not this time.

Everett, Washington, where the game was being played, is located just southeast of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, in the Puget Sound town of Coupeville, a deer took to the field. Now, we have talked about this a bunch of times, sports and nature intersect a lot, especially the wildlife.

The timing of the deer was impeccable. Kings High was in the process of kicking off when the deer pranced onto the field and led all the blockers 95-yards down the field with Coupeville’s Sean Toomey-Stout making the touchdown return.

I am not sure which is more impressive, the blocking by the deer or the 95-yard return for the touchdown. What I am impressed with though is that the deer stayed in bounds the entire time.

The crowd went wild with the play, probably more for the Toomey-Stout touchdown than the deer but it now has a story to tell its herd about the time it led the way for a touchdown.

Thankfully the refs kept their flags in their pockets and did not call a penalty for too many men on the field.

That touchdown narrowed the deficit for Coupeville to 20-14. However, they were unable to find the end zone again, losing by that score.

It left many in attendance saying, “oh deer!”
