It isn’t a trick. There’s nothing special about this play, but it worked over and over in Friday night’s Salem Spartans game against the Christiansburg Blue Demons. It is a basic pass down field to the tight end.
The first time it was called Friday night, the result was a touchdown and it wouldn’t be the last!
You can see quarterback Jack Gladden connect with tight end Avery Close in a textbook execution that resulted in the first of many touchdowns HERE.
The game ended with the Spartan’s third win of the season in the 41-7 defeat of Christiansburg.
