Matt Knowles, of Ocala, Fla., says, "We play in an annual touch football tournament at Florida Christian College every February (50-60 teams from all over the state). For the 11th year in a row our team (Central - Ocala) made the playoffs. Last year we couldn't convert on a 4th-and-goal from the one-foot line and that knocked us out. We designed this trick play the day after last year's tourney to fix this and were able to use it one year to the day in the first round playoff game this year (notice that the QBs hands and knees never touch the ground until he's in the end zone). This play helped us advance this time! P.S. The video is in slow motion so you can actually see what's going on. (Video Credit: Meagan Myatt)"
