Trick plays are certainly sneaky, and may not always be held in the highest regard, but we also have to recognize the creativity and delivery that goes into a successfully executed trick play. For every fruitful trick play, there are probably 100 failures. The Little Giants made “The Annexation of Puerto RIco” famous when they used it to take down the Cowboys in a dramatic underdog win. From the original “Fumblerooski” to the recent Driscoll Middle School acting clinic, we went out to find our five favorites and hope you will enjoy the trickery.
