Connecticut private school runs elaborate trick play for win

Monday October 20th, 2014

Brunswick School of Greenwich, Conn., was trailing by one point with 23 seconds left in its game against Salisbury School over the weekend when it unleashed an intricate trick play that took it 50 yards down the field for the win.

The trick play involves two reverses followed by a cross field pass -- all behind the line of scrimmage -- before receiver Malik Wilder headed up the field. Even with all the misdirection, Salisbury school still appeared to have Wilder pinned down before he made a cut back across field to find the end zone.

The Greenwich Time reports the team had been working on the play, called Cookoo, in practice but had never gotten any results before the coach called it in the game.
