HALL-WORTHY?

Which other actors could join Sylvester Stallone in a sports Hall of Fame?

A junior varsity team from Southern California pulled off what could be the trick play of all time on Friday. And its star has some acting in his blood.

During a 52-6 victory, El Camino Real quarterback Jahlil Pinkett takes the snap, and calmly starts strolling toward the sideline, seeming to request a new football.

Everyone — and we mean everyone — on both sides lets up as Pinkett heads toward the sideline, or so the Cleveland High School defense believes. The ruse is aided as coaches on the sideline look for an official ball.

Pinkett picks up his pace as he approaches the end of the line, turns upfield and the video tells the rest of the story . . .

If the quarterback's last name sounds familiar, it should. Pinkett is the nephew of Jada Pinkett Smith, the actress wife of Will Smith.

"We put in some fun plays to keep them interested," coach Brandon Holmes told the Los Angeles Times. "Everyone is acting like it's a wrong ball. The center had to hand the ball legally. The team was surprised. No one really reacted until he was 30, 40 yards ahead."
