In the annals of trick plays, few have been better executed than the trick play you see in the highlight above.
As you can see at the 2:50 mark of the video, Glendale and Camdenton were locked in a tight contest when Glendale quarterback Alex Huston moved out from his spot in the shotgun and trotted toward the sideline to consult with his coaches. At least, it appeared that he was headed over to ask coaches what they thought he should do. Instead, Huston was executing the start of a terrific trick play, in which he split out as a stealth wide receiver while actual wide receiver Von Oeser lined up in the backfield.
Apparently Camdenton was not alerted by the fact that a wide receiver lined up as a pseudo running back to peak curiosity, leaving Huston to trot toward the sideline, then pivot and streak down the field, where Oeser hit him with a perfect pass.
The play didn’t go for a touchdown — Huston was eventually pulled down by a pair of Camdenton tacklers. Still, it was incredibly successful, and a wildly bold decision for Glendale to even try it in the first place. The play proved once again that it always pays to go with the gusto, with Glendale emerging from the contest with a 60-41 victory.
