Double pass

A double pass is a trick play in American football which can mean either of a running or a passing play. As a running play, it is like a reverse conducted with lateral passes instead of hand-offs. A play with a lateral and then a forward pass can also be called a double pass, and in fact is more commonly today. Teams may keep one of the quarterbacks far wide as a receiver and throw a screen pass to him on a double pass play, where he then throws deep downfield or across the field to the scrambling quarterback.[1]
