Video: Mississippi high school pulls of the holder-throwback fake field goal

Oftentimes, in football, beauty lies in the simplest of plays.

That goes for trick plays too, as this video from Tupelo HS (MS) illustrates with the throwback to the holder. Keep your eye on the holder the entire time, it's the split second of hesitation that really sells long as they don't notice the awkward crouching position pre-snap.

I can think of no logical reason that this shouldn't be in the back pocket of every special teams coach.
