My high school team sets up in a vertical stack with a handler and an off handler.  We found a play that works very well to isolate a particular mismatch.  Have the most mismatched (favorably) player come out to play off handler.  Then a coach or the handler yells at the top of his lungs "BANZAI!!!!!!" And the entire stack makes a big jab step to the open side before running away to the side line.  Meanwhile, all this distraction has given the offhandler plenty of time to run deep.  He should be and there was only one time that he was not...completely alone with his defender.  The handler throws deep, our man makes the catch.

Is there another name for this play?  Is it done?  Can you think of improvements?  What do you think?

Only really going to work once, maybe twice if your opponents are idiots.

If there's such a mismatch to be exploited, there's no need for a set play like that. Just tell the guy to cut long! I'm quite tall myself (6'5") and if I find I'm being matched by a 5'2" dude, I'll just take off to the endzone at about 50% pace. If the handler decides to have a shot, I step up the pace a bit to chase it down. If I get followed by two players, I keep going because it means someone else is free for an easy in-cut.
