Ohio HS pulls off trick play where 5 players touch ball in the backfield

Five players (count them up) touch the ball behind the line of scrimmage here on a trick play from Hudson HS (OH) against Twinsburg HS (OH).

A total of five players touching the ball in the backfield is impressive. Can anyone scheme up six (and score)?

If this trick play looks familiar, it's because you might have seen it before labeled as the jet sweep-reverse-flea flicker-screen pass taken right from Brunswick HS, who ran it successfully with 5 seconds left in a pivotal game to score and win.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, especially in the coaching profession.

Regardless of the situation (or school/program), this one took some big cojones to call, and a little luck to execute.
