Arkansas State wide receiver Booker Mays attempted an unusual diversion tactic during a fake punt against Miami last Saturday. He faked having a heart attack. 

With Mays' team trailing 20-7 in the second quarter, Arkansas State attempted a fake punt pass that fell several yards short of the receiver and was intercepted.

Mays tried to coax Miami defenders to distraction by stiffening up, placing his hands over his chest and falling straight backwards onto the turf while the play ensued. Not only did Miami players not take the bait -- or even notice the supposed cardiac arrest -- Hurricanes linebacker Thurston Armbrister leveled Mays with a block as he aborted the performance. 

While the play didn't even come close to working, credit Mays for going full-rigor mortis in the middle of an FBS game.
