Running Montana State’s Fake Punt

“When we used this fake against Sacramento State, it was 4th-and-1 at our 30-yard line. It was a risky call, but I was convinced they would rush hard and the play would be wide-open. This fake punt was designed to counteract the extremely heavy rush that teams were utilizing against our ‘shield’ punt formation.” – Rob Ash, Head Coach, Montana State University, Former AFCA President
