California quarterback fools entire defense on trick play (Video)


Every now and then you get a ridiculous trick play that works in high school football thanks to mass confusion. The El Camino Real junior varsity team was taking on Taft in a California high school football game, when a nifty little trick play led to one of the easiest touchdowns you will ever see.

El Camino Real JV quarterback Jahlil Pinkett, who just so happens to be the nephew of the one and only Jada Pinkett-Smith, fooled the entire defense by taking a side snap from the center and slowly making his way to the sideline.

The coaching staff and players on the El Camino offense were yelling “wrong ball,” when Pinkett began jogging to the sideline. Once he realized the entire defense was frozen, he kicked it into high gear and sprinted down the sideline all the way to the endzone for the easiest touchdown of his high school career.

Perhaps the most entertaining part of the video was the man behind the camera saying, “I can’t believe that worked.”

Well down, El Camino Real.
