VIDEO: Eastern Kentucky runs punt-screen offense against Morehead State

Skip Holtz is intrigued.

The explanation, from Blue Grass Preps:

Jordan Berry, the EKU punter, took the snap and kicked a rugby style kick to EKU gunner Trey Thomas. Since Thomas was behind the line of scrimmage he was allowed to advance the ball--which he did for a first down. My son is the long snapper and he says that they've practiced this over the two seasons that he's been there but never tried it in a game before.

BUT HOW IS THIS LEGAL?

As noted, as long as the ball doesn't pass the line of scrimmage, the kicking team can advance it. It's a *hack* of the rule that allows the offense to try and salvage a blocked punt or field goal. You know, the rule this high school team took advantage of in order to win a game after having its own kick blocked:
