So, i was listening to NPR last night and one of their football analysts basically launched into a rant about this trick play which can be seen by doing a youtube search for Driscoll Middle School. He went on and on about how unfair it was to the other team, how it was a legal play but displayed unsportsmanlike conduct because the Driscoll coach, who came up with the play basically tricked the other team into giving up a touchdown and so on and so forth, so, finally i went and watched it.
the gist of the play was:
Coach calls for a penalty from the sidelines.
Center hands the ball to the QB over his shoulder
QB takes the ball and acts like he's marking out a five yard penalty, walks straight through the defensive line then basically runs like a mofo for 67 yards, being chased by one of the defenders who almost catches him, and scores a touchdown.
IMO It was absolutely classic and it was the kind of football i grew up watching. All I have to say is "Frank (De Ford) get a life. It was what it was, a great play engineered by a coach who obviously had a lot of confidence in his young quarterback. After all, the QB was the one who ultimately had to pull it off."
Not to mention it was just plain fun to watch.
So, have you seen the video? What do you think?
