We have seen a plethora of high school football trick plays this year. This play, courtesy of Skyline (Wash.) High, led to a 49-yard touchdown that gave Skyline a 51-28 Class WIAA Class 4A state semifinal victory was against rival school Camas (Wash.) High.
The play starts out with senior quarterback Max Browne of Skyline taking the snap from the gun, then tossing a bounce pass laterally to his wide receiver Matt Sinatro. Sinatro caught the ball, then paused for a brief second before heaving the ball downfield to fellow wideout Nic Sblendorio. Sblendorio caught the pass and scored the touchdown with ease.
If this play sounds familiar, it’s because it already happened once this year when Fort Lauderale (Fla.) Westminster Academy used a similar “bounce pass” play against Coral Springs (Fla.) Charter School.
