High School Team Scores TD By Having A Player Do Flips To Distract The Other Team
Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports
Whatever works, I guess...


Per Providence Journal...
quote:

The play had no name. In fact, the Johnston football had run it before — only to get flagged by an overzealous referee. But playing Pilgrim in a game that was scheduled two days before it took place, the Panthers decided to break it out again — and much like wide receiver Joey Acciardo does on the play, the entire internet flipped out.

Acciardo’s not your normal over-athletic receiver; his mother Jo-Ann runs High Steppin’ Dance Academy in Johnston where Acciardo trained before he even picked up a football. He’s danced on stage with Bieber, performed at the Macy’s Day Parade and auditioned for a TV show hosted by Jennifer Lopez.

Johnston had trouble with the flip play in practice because of the difficulty in getting the timing down with Acciardo’s motion, the flips, and their traditional goal-line counts. To solve this, Johnston basically threw what it normally does out the window and had Remington wait a moment for Acciardo to get started before snapping the ball on a modified count.

I don’t think any of the defense paid him any attention.
