Winning play: Football hero Kaleb Eulls disarms girl on bus

By Mike Celizic
This one wasn’t in the playbook. So, when a 14-year-old girl waved a loaded gun on a Mississippi school bus, high school quarterback Kaleb Eulls called his own play — and made a life-saving tackle for the record books.

It was just before 7 a.m. Tuesday. Eulls, star player for Yazoo County High School, was dozing in the back of the bus, lulled by the tunes on his MP3 player, when his 16-year-old sister, Kimberly, roused him from slumber with an urgent piece of news: “Kaleb, the girl has a gun.”

The bus was carrying 22 children ranging in age from 5 to 18. And Eulls, who excels both as a quarterback and a defensive end, wasted no time going into action.

Waving a weapon
“I just immediately woke up and put my glasses on to see what was what, and she was just pointing the gun at different students at the back,” Eulls told TODAY’s Lester Holt Thursday from Pickens, Miss.

Surveillance video from the school bus shows that the girl had stood up earlier, taken out a cheap, chrome-plated .38 automatic handgun, slid a clip with five rounds of ammunition in it, and started walking up and down the aisle of the bus, brandishing the weapon. Full story.
