With just 14 seconds remaining in the first half, the San Antonio Brahmas lined up for a daunting 58-yard field goal attempt. But what followed was anything but ordinary. Punter Brad Wing, known for his daring plays, stepped out of the field goal formation and signalled for motion. The DC Defenders’ defense was left bewildered, trying to decipher the unexpected turn of events.

As the ball snapped, Brad Wing had all the time in the world. His eyes scanned the field, seeking an open receiver. And there, downfield, stood Alex Mollette—the Brahmas’ centre, a position not typically associated with catching passes. But this was no ordinary play. Mollette was wide open, a testament to the element of surprise. Wing’s throw found its mark, and Mollette secured the ball. With a burst of speed that defied his 300-pound frame, he sprinted 40 yards to the end zone. Touchdown! The crowd erupted, and Mollette’s teammates mobbed him in celebration.

They call it the “fix six.” A term coined for unexpected touchdowns, it perfectly encapsulates the magic of Alex Mollette’s feat. His natural catching ability and unexpected burst of speed left everyone in awe. Who would have thought that a centre, a linchpin of the offensive line, would become the hero of the day? But Mollette’s journey to that moment was far from straightforward.
