You must practice the play over and over again. Since the appearance will be similar to the start of a normal play, you must be both physically and mentally ready to confuse the opposition with an unexpected twist. Keep on practicing it until it becomes second nature.
Control Your Actions
It is natural that whenever humans are about to do something unusual, their body language gets a bit of a change to it and you can take bigger strides or have a brighter smile on your face. Keep it in check and make sure that you do not give clues of what is to come next.
Be confident that you can execute it. All that practice will help and the knowledge in your head that you can do it is very important. Without confidence, you will be unable to make the most plays let alone a trick one.
The Right Time
You are up by a couple of touch downs and three minutes are left while you are in the center of the field, this is certainly not the time to bring out your surprise play. Only use it in extremely desperate times. Say that it’s fourth and long and you are in the centre of the field. Time is running out to cut the deficit down and you are in a position where you can lose the match, this is the right time to pull a stunner and surprise everyone.
Do not make any special moves before the play. Everyone must know their part and play it well. Keep the whole affair under wraps so that the opposition isn’t sure what hit them. A subtle surprise play will be a great success once you do it and will get you back into the game.
