Football Deception and Trick Plays

It seems like we see a play like this every 2 or 3 years. I get the novelty of it, and I bet the coaches have fun teaching it in practice and seeing the kids pull it off in a game.

Me, I’m old school. I prefer deception plays done in full flow with football moves. We run the Wing-T offense and rely on ball fakes executed to perfection, and series plays that show similar back movement but with very different blocking schemes and results. One of our favorites this year is a sweep play to the wing-back off a weak-side isolation play to the fullback. It helps having a fullback and line that can run this ISO play consistently well as you get the outside linebackers (and, as you’ll see in the video, even the cornerbacks) crashing in hard on the fullback. Our quarterback is a master at the belly fake - watch how well he tucks the ball away with the fullback then pulls it out for the wingback.
