Of course, there’s a leadership lesson to be learned here.
When you see this pass, it looks cool. It fooled the defense and resulted in a touchdown. On top of all that, it was executed to perfection. Who wouldn’t want to pull off this play?
Here’s the thing: This play likely took hours of practice to perfect. The coach didn’t just draw this up in a timeout right before it happened. Everyone had to get their part down, and they likely got it wrong several dozen times in practice before they felt like they had it right.
Was the work and practice worth it? Absolutely, especially considering the play’s been featured on ESPN and NFL.com, among other news outlets. But it didn’t happen overnight. It took dreaming, vision, planning, and preparation.
