Arkansas pulls off lineman-to-long snapper TD pass

Print

Arkansas pulled off the sort of craziness usually reserved for backyard football games among the bros.

Arkansas' 350-pound offensive guard Sebastian Tretola lined up at quarterback in an unbalanced line shotgun formation and completed a six-yard TD pass to Alan D'Appollonio. D'Appollonio, it should be noted, is the Razorbacks' long snapper. The result is an offensive lineman-to-long snapper, fat-guy-throws-TD, once-in-a-lifetime event.

In the second quarter of its game against Alabama-Birmingham, Arkansas faced a fourth-and-goal from the UAB 6-yard line. That's when the Razorbacks dialed up the magic.

Now, take a look at the madness from another angle.

You saw that right, that's a player wearing No. 73 lining up at quarterback on a center-eligible play. Just another zany football moment from the mind of Arkansas coach Bret Bielema.
