Nationís most creative special teams coaches design 2-point play that incorporates a fake monkey and is called the Wrecking Ball

Meet the Wrecking Ball, football edition. Sherwood High (Sherwood, Ore.) used the play you see above during the first quarter of it's 62-7 rout of Putnam High (Putnam, Ore.). Following an early touchdown, the Bowmen lined up in a traditional extra point formation and appeared content to attempt the traditional point-after-touchdown.

That's when things got weird. The designated holder turned from his spot on a knee in front of kicker Martin Layna, swiveled toward the sideline and began hopping off while screeching like a monkey. As defenders began to confusedly stare at the now-hopping holder, Layna called for the snap and rushed straight ahead at full speed, with the 5-foot-5, 240-pounder looking just like -- you guessed it -- a wrecking ball.

The forward rush into the end zone seems like a natural conclusion for the play, right? Not for Sherwood. Just before Layna reached the line of scrimmage he released a lofted pass to the back of the end zone, intended for enormous 6-foot-11 tight end Jordan Kurahara. Against Putnam it worked to perfection, handing the Bowmen an extra point early.


Of course, the conversion against Putnam wasn't Sherwood's first unique two-point attempt this year. The Bowmen also used the vexing misdirection fake naked bootleg pass you see directly above during the team's victory against Hermiston High (Hermiston, Ore.) earlier in the 2013 season, as dug up by MaxPreps.

Given the Bowmen's pitch perfect execution of bizarre, intricate PAT plays, perhaps it shouldn't be surprising that the team is currently undefeated at 9-0 and will enter the Oregon Class 5A playoffs heavily favored to take home the state title.
