April 25, 2015 - Venom kicker Jacob Felton hits game winner over Law
"The Amarillo Venom overcame two second-half deficits and produced their biggest win of the season as the golden leg of kicker Jacob Felton booted the Venom past the first-place Dodge City Law, 44-43, on Saturday night at Amarillo Civic Center Complex Cal Farley Coliseum. The Venom (4-3) trailed 43-41 with 1:44 to play in the game after Dodge City quarterback Joshua Floyd scored on 6-yard run on fourth down. But with two timeouts and a running game led by Martee Tenner, who grounded out 19 yards on the final drive, Amarillo moved the ball to the Law 10-yard line. That gave Felton, who is a River Road assistant football coach, a great look at the game-winning kick with 5.5 seconds remaining. 'I was feeling it,' said Felton, who converted 3-of-4 field-goal attempts and all five PAT kicks. 'It was an easy kick. It was all on our offense that battled back to put me in that position'." - Venom

I’m in the same routine as I used to do and I’m having fun'." - Amarillo Globe-News
