      I saw the exact same play work for a TD in a junior varsity football game here in Yuma in about 1961 or '62. The quarterback called out, "That is a 15 yard penalty against you", pointing to a player on the other team, and then he was gone before anyone knew what happened. It can only work once, though, or the QB will get crushed.

        They interviewed the coach and the kid that pulled the play off on CNN. The coach said he had talked with the officials before the game to make sure the play was legal. He also gave them a list of trick plays his team might use. The consesnus among the coaches and the players was that either the quaterback would get crushed or make a first down or touchdown.
