The Element of Surprise in Middle-School Football – NYTimes.com

No, this trick won’t work in the NFL, but Driscoll Middle School in Corpus Christi, Tex., pulled it off brilliantly. During a recent game, the “middle school quarterback is handed the ball at the snap in such a manner that his opponents believe the play has not begun. And the teenage player then brazenly strolls through the opposing ranks without a finger laid on him before realizing his ploy has come good.” The quarterback then takes off running all the way to the end zone.

It will probably be some time before Driscoll is able to pull off this play again. But it sure would be fun to see them try …

I don’t even like football, but this is pretty funny.
