If you have seen one “this is the wrong ball” trick play, you have seen them all. Lucky for El Camino Real’s junior varsity team, namely quarterback Jahlil Pinkett, the eleven guys on Reseda Cleveland’s defense had not seen one.
On the first play of the game Friday, Pinkett took the snap and started walking to the sideline while shouting, “Coach, wrong ball.” After he got to the edge of the defense, he took off down the sideline untouched for an 80-yard touchdown.
You can judge Pinkett’s acting skills yourself. It could be the first step to a career for him. He’s the nephew of Jada Pinkett Smith.
Also, ATTENTION AMATEUR FOOTBALL COACHES: don’t let this play happen again.
