No flipping way.
Joe Accidardo, a wide receiver for Johnston High School Panthers in Rhode Island, did a series of backflips while running in motion to misdirect the defense.
The distraction worked, as the Panthers scored a touchdown on the play.
Whether it was even necessary for Johnston to score on the sneak is debatable. Nevertheless, the absurd play contributed to Johnston’s 29-12 victory over the Pilgrim Patriots on Thanksgiving.
Football is a copycat sport, and it would be profoundly entertaining to see a college or NFL team try to replicate this trickeration.
