By Michael Thomas     Jan 22, 2016 in Sports
Thornville - Sports always foster intense competition, and fans are always trying to distract players on the opposite team. Few fans would think to stage a birth, however.
Students at Sheridan High in Thornville, Ohio — east of Columbus — went viral Wednesday with the posting of a 15-second Twitter video from Storied Rivals.
As an opposing player tried make a free throw, one fan pretended to give birth to another fan. To the Sheridan fans' delight, the player missed his shot.
The students who pulled off the prank call themselves the Red Regiment, and the prank got the attention of sports anchors across the country.
While Sheridan students are loving the worldwide attention, the Red Regiment is reminding fans that there's still plenty of basketball action left in the season. Friday night, they'll face off against Crooksville High.
