Video: Maryland HS pulls off the perfect bounce pass TD trick play

I'm not football historian, but I imagine that the bounce pass trick play has been around for as long as artificial grass / astroturf has been around when coaches and players discovered that a bounce pass is almost as predictable on those surfaces as it is on the hardwood.

North Point HS (MD) pulled out the bounce pass play from their bag of tricks recently, and executed it to near perfection.

Notice how players on defense stop once the ball skips across the ground backwards (thus making it a fumble), allowing the receiver turned quarterback to deliver a strike down the field for the score.

It looks like the reception could have been a little cleaner, but other than that, this is a play of beauty.
