While still a few weeks away from basketball season, we’ve seen the first bounce pass assist, thanks to an inventive high school football team in Florida.
The team pulling off the rather unique adaptation of a wide receiver option pass for a touchdown in the video above is Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Westminster Academy, which pulled their best proverbial rabbit out of the hat on the very first play from scrimmage during the team’s Senior Night victory against Coral Springs (Fla.) Charter.
As covered by MaxPreps, the play unfolded like this: Traditional Westminster running back Spencer Saliba lined up as the team’s quarterback, taking a snap in the shotgun. As soon as Saliba got the ball from center he turned and fired a one-bounce pass that traveled directly to the team’s usual quarterback, Ray Sharp, who had lined up as one of the team’s receivers in a four-wide set to the left.
Sharp took his time with the ball, buying additional time for his receivers to break downfield. Then he unloaded a deep ball that traveled directly to wide out Andrew James, who began the play as a tight end on the right side of the team’s formation, then broke across the field deep.
