Between the name of the play and the execution of it, this may be one of the best trick plays ever.

Lewis and Clark Middle School came up with a trick play called "The Ugly Kardashian." In a recent game against Thomas Jefferson Middle School, the play was introduced to the world.

Following a failed onside kick by Thomas Jefferson, Lewis and Clark quarterback Atiq Muhammad took the snap nonchalantly and began to walk through the defense while pointing in the direction of the referee. Then, he took off toward the end zone.

As the video shows, the defense had no idea what was going on.

Lewis and Clark head coach Shawn Griggs explained the trick play, per MaxPrep's Stephen Spiewak:

[I] wanted something catchy and funny, and always loved the name of the trick play from Little Giants.

When I said it the first time in the huddle they wouldn't stop laughing. I threatened to change the name of it because they would laugh everytime I said it.

Football is supposed to be fun. So the name stayed.

Luckily, the players were able to keep their composure when the play was called during the game.

What was better, the play design or the name?
