Question here. I know quite a bit about football but don't actually know this specific rule. Here is the scenario:
- QB says "Ready Set Hike"
- Center lifts ball of ground to hand to QB
- QB acts like he took the snap and runs to the right to mimic a QB sneak
- Running Back quickly grabs the hiked ball from between the Centers legs and runs.
Is this a legal play with respect to standard American Football regulations?
