Five-year-olds pull off picture-perfect Statue of Liberty play

This is both wonderfully effective and entertaining.

As dug up by the fine folks at Bob's Blitz, the highlight you see above shows a picture-perfect Statue of Liberty play as run by a crew of 5- and 6-year-olds competing for the Suniland Sundevils. Needless to say, this Sundevils squad competes in the pee wee division. The Sundevils play at Suniland Park in Miami, and according to their team website they've built up an impressive 7-1 record so far in 2013.

Perhaps they've been so successful because their coach Jason Barket diagrams and runs effective trick plays against 5- and 6-year-old defenses, as evidenced by the Statue of Liberty you see executed above. That is about as smooth a trick play as you'll see this side of Boise State, and it's clear the Sundevils had practiced it plenty.

Of course, even if it hadn't worked, it's pretty darn entertaining to watch 5- and 6-year-olds run around on a football field. When they use a play that is sometimes botched by adults who have competed in the sport for years? Well, that just makes the highlight all the more captivating.
