    And this wouldn't fly in the NFL because I'm fairly sure that if there wasn't a time out called, even on a play like this, that the pros would be smart enough to figure out what was going on.
    Ya this play would never work in the NFL, I was surprised it worked for us at the high school level..

    I wouldn't say it wouldn't work... remember that Patriots' trick play where the kicker through it to the wide receiver that no one followed?

    the other teams coaches are at fault for not coaching his/her team correctly
    the team that pulled the play off is following the rules within the limits, so ya cant blame them there
    look at some of the plays that happen in the nfl that people cheer for when they go their way.
    dan marino fake spike for a td classic
    That's what I mean, if the ball moves or exchanges hands, the defense better be going towards that ball and getting whoever has the ball

    Football is the great sport it is due to it is a game of strategy. Out thinking your opponent, coming up with ways to both score and to keep the other team from scoring.

    The offense simply dreamed up a strategy to get a score, can't fault anyone but the other team that got out smarted.

    Nothing wrong with the play what so ever.

    That's an awesome play. As long as it's legal, props to them. Because it's a trick play, not cheating.
