We have seen quite a few trick plays in our time, but we have never seen something like this.
Johnston Senior High School in Johnston, Rhode Island faced Pilgrim High School of Warwick, Rhode Island this past Thursday and it produced a viral moment.
Johnston won the game 29-12, thanks in part to a genius trick play.
WPRI 12’s Rosie Langello shared video of Johnston receiver Joe Accicardo using his gymnastics tumbling routine skills to distract the opposing team as they watched him do multiple backflips in the backfield.
He did about three handsprings and a flip as his team hiked the ball and rushed ahead for a touchdown.
