Backflipping Trick Play FAILS: Ref Ejects Coach (VIDEO)

After Driscoll high school pulled off a trick play for the ages in their football game a few days ago, Watauga high in north Carolina decided it wanted a shot at glory. Unfortunately, it never got off the ground.

As they lined up for an extra point, a man went in motion . . . by backflipping. By the time he got to the 5th backflip the ref threw a flag for excessive celebration and stopped the play. Watauga's coach stormed the field, argued the call, and was then ejected from the game.

The best part of the video is the commentators wondering what was illegal about the play, with one of them finally answering that it was stupid. "Stupid isn't illegal," another retorts.
