Football can be a stressful game. Especially for a quarterback. So sometimes a team just needs to take a step back, realize that it's just a game, after all, and play a hilarious prank on the leader of the offense.

Wait, what?

Kudos to the Centre Colonels, a Division III team from Danville, Kentucky, for joshin' quarterback Heath Haden by "playing dead" as soon as he takes the snap during their afternoon practice:

And equal props go to Haden for embracing the prank like a champ. He could have simply spiked the ball. Instead, he made the most of the situation and got a rare punting rep under his belt.

The Colonels obviously know how to balance work and play on the field. Earlier this summer, one of their coaches got tased in an effort to "boost team morale."

Keep on doing you, Centre Colonels. Your antics are wildly entertaining.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, and Joe’s claim to fame since joining he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
