The following is taken from a newspaper account of the North Carlolina 3A Championship game between Asheville and Western Alamance played at Duke University on 12/10/05.

"The trick play by the Cougars (15-0) came with them facing a second down and 17 from their own 30-yard line.

A large group of Asheville players came into the game in a mass substitution and several went out, except for receiver Rahkeem Morgan, who stood just inside the out-of-bounds line.

Western didn't notice him and he ran down the field wide open. Cougars quarterback Crezdon Butler immediately saw Morgan and hit him in stride.

A Warriors defender caught him at the 5, but couldn't prevent the touchdown and a 13-10 lead.

"I saw that the corner didn't adjust. We were in desperate straits," said Asheville coach Danny Wilkins. "That was sort of a last resort thing. We let the officials know two plays before that we were going to run it." "

Any thoughts?
