Note to coaches and young football players everywhere: This is how you do not execute an onside kick.
This unknown youth football team in this video was really unfortunate more than anything else. Sure, the kick was a poor one, but from his approach it looked as if the kicker was being asked to produce a rope-a-dope and kick to the left after approaching as if he was going to drive the ball to the right.
It did go left … and backwards, carrying a total of -5 yards before being scooped up when no one touched it and returned to the end zone for an easy six points. Smart thinking by one young team, poor execution by another. Orange slices and Capri Sun pouches for all following the handshake line.
