Everyone loves trick plays, except for the teams at the losing end of one. Or so it seems. This has to be one of the most asked about and requested plays that I get.
My canned response is, if you follow my concepts of good play design, you’ll know that every flag football play should have some trickery to it. But I don’t think this is what people are talking about when they ask for trick plays. I think what they really want are the gadget plays, the gimmicks, the show stoppers; something with some flare and a little razzle-dazzle.
That one play that is your only chance when all your hope has just about faded…
