Late fake punt clinches GJ’s victory over Montrose

Jax Nourse: quarterback and punter. Sometimes, he plays both positions on the same play.
Late in the fourth quarter Friday, Nourse, from punt formation, tossed a 33-yard completion to Malik Jackson on fourth down and long to lift the Grand Junction High School football team to a 14-10 nonconference win over Montrose in the season opener at Stocker Stadium.
The play is a designed fake, and Tigers coach Robbie Owens said it was available for most of the game.
He just waited until the waning moments to call it.
