Kudos to Driscoll Middle School in Texas for pulling off the old “nothing to see here, just walking through the neutral zone” trick play. I don’t want to be hard on middle school kids or anything, but the defense should have known what was going on here. Check out this video of a trick play by a Texas middle school, courtesy of Deadspin:
The defense wasn’t tipped off by the fact that every offensive player remained perfectly still while the quarterback was just sauntering across the line of scrimmage? I can understand being confused because the play is so strange, but someone on the offense would probably have moved a muscle if the play wasn’t designed. Regardless, you can bet your you-know-what they’ll never fall for that again.
