Player Fakes Death During Fake Punt [VIDEO]
Arkansas State was playing the University of Miami this past week and during a fake punt decided to have a player play dead. This is a MUST WATCH VIDEO for any football fan.
So what the heck happened there? Arkansas State coach Blake Anderson explains:
"Because of the formation we were in for that fake punt, Booker was covered up and couldn't go downfield, or it would be a penalty. So we said, 'What do we want to do with him? Do we want to bubble him or peel him out?' Someone said let's just let him be a fainting goat. I loved it, so we just put that in. His job on that play was basically to not get a penalty by going downfield, because the fake was on the backside of the play. These kids have had five head coaches in five years, so we try to let them have fun."
You can bet I will break out "The Fainting Goat" next time I play!
