Frustrated prep football player sorry for running from bench to make a tackle

A high school football player in central Minnesota has apologized for running off the sideline to make a touchdown-saving tackle on Friday night. 

Trailing 46-20 to Zimmerman in the fourth quarter, St. Cloud Cathedral senior captain Brad Reuter was on the sideline when Zimmerman running back Camerin Morey got loose and was racing to the end zone for an 88-yard touchdown. 

Reuter, admittedly frustrated, ran off the sideline and tackled Morey from behind at the 15-yard-line. 

The officials wound up awarding Morey a touchdown and Zimmerman won the game 53-20. Reuter, who had two sacks in the game, issued an apology the next day saying his decision "was the result of not thinking and was based purely on passion, emotion and frustration." 

Cathedral football accepted Reuter's apology and agreed that he shouldn't let one mistake define who he is. 

Meanwhile, the high school football regular season wraps up this week with playoffs beginning next week.

And because of the MEA break, pretty much every team in the state will play its regular season finale on Wednesday night.
