Rhode Island High School Football Player Does Multiple Backflips Ahead Of The Snap

A group of people playing football

I’ll tell ya what, I’ve seen some wild videos coming from high school football games this year.

From captains playing rock, paper, scissors to see who gets the ball first, to a ginormous offensive lineman dropping an absolute dime of a touchdown pass, it’s been crazy.

This video may top them all, though.

Johnston High School in Johnston, Rhode Island was squaring off against Pilgrim High School in a playoff game yesterday, when they had marched down the field to the one yard line.

A lot of times, you’ll see teams run a basic quarterback sneak, a handoff to the running back, or they’ll mix it up a little and throw in a defensive lineman and use them as a fullback.

Johnston tried to do something a little unique, however.

In the video, you see wide receiver Joe Accicardo go in motion, when out of nowhere, the man does multiple backflips.

Sure enough, everybody on the defense turns their attention to Accicardo, thinking to themselves:

“What the f*ck is going on?”

That’s when the center snaps the ball, and the running back easily gets into the end zone for the score.

The obscure, yet awesome, play paid off, as Johnston defeated Pilgrim 29-12 to advance in the playoffs.

Somebody give this offensive coordinator a raise.
