Westminster Academy (FL) pulled off this awesomely perfect (and, yes, intentional) trick pass play on the first play from scrimmage in their final home game of the season. Westminster’s offensive coordinator, Jimmy Robertson, reportedly drew up this play and had his team practice it all season in preparation for this moment.
It calls for the guy lined up at quarterback to throw a perfect bounce pass behind the line of scrimmage to one of the wide receivers, who then bombs it downfield to another wide open receiver. What’s the secret? Well, the dude that threw the bomb was actually the quarterback, hidden by three surrounding receivers on the near side. The defense didn’t know that the dude receiving the bounce-pass could throw a bomb like that. The guy taking the snap? The running back. Not a bad bounce pass from a halfback, I’d say.
Every aspect of the play worked to perfection and Mr. Robertson winds up looking like a sly sonofagun and a genius trickster. Had it not, the man would have looked like a complete fool, but so goes the world of sports.
