North Carolina High School Football Player Ejected From Game for Excessive Backflipping in Failed Trick Play

North Carolina High School Football Player Ejected From Game for Excessive Backflipping in Failed Trick Play Everyone’s trying to make it big on the Internet these days with trick plays. This week, some youngster was made famous for his little sneakaroo through the line and dash for the end zone.

A high schooler from North Carolina might get a similar share of attention, but for very different reasons.

The kid — Cam Haas of Watauga High — ran in motion prior to a two-point conversion attempt. Running in motion typically isn’t something that gets penalized, but when you do several consecutive backflips, it’s apparently against the rules.

Yahoo has all the details on the play, which resulted in the player and head coach of the offending team getting ejected. Though there’s no rule that says illegal use of gymnastics warrants ejection from the game, Haas didn’t seem too angry about it.

“They ejected me for excessive celebration… whatever, it was worth it!” he wrote as a comment under the YouTube video.

Haas’ team might have cared, though, as Watauga lost to St. Stephen’s on a last-minute field goal. No word yet on whether the St. Stephen’s players celebrated with backflips, much like this young fellow celebrated his goal with cartwheels.
