The Greatest Trick Plays in Football
I had someone send me a clip of a trick play, and as often seems to happen, I got so interested in it that I wanted to see more! Well, you guys know how that works. I figured that if I was already watching all these videos I might as well catalog them to share, and to save anyone else wanting to see a list like this some time.
So, all of you wannabe football players out there – listen up! You better study these plays because you either need to use them against your bitter rivals, or ensure that they don’t use them against you!
The Wrong Ball
It’s amazing that this play even works. But when it does, it works well!
Greatest Fake Punt Ever
Crappiest video recording on this list, but just couldn’t leave this out. Watch the snapper closely.
Arkansas Vs Alabama 2006
Arkansas snaps the ball before Alabama gets on the field. First down!
Arkansas Vs Auburn 2006
2006 must have been the year of the trick play for Arkansas. And this is one I’ve never seen before!
The Little League ‘Wrong Ball’
Works even better with the kids than in college.
South Carolina Tricks Kentucky
Statue of Liberty
You gotta watch close on this one. Don’t worry, they show the close up instant replay at the end.
The Dipsey Doodle
Auburn vs Arkansas 2004. Watch the ball change hands no less than 4 times!
Tied game, clock running down, starting quarterback throws ball to backup quarterback lurking along the sideline, who hits a receiver on a slant who then outruns defenders into the end zone. Winning play.
2007 Fiesta Bowl
At least three major trick plays in one college game! Highlights from 28-28 to 43-42. Last trick plays of Boise State’s victory over Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl
