Naked Bootleg

What is Naked Bootleg?

An offensive play where the quarterback takes the snap and runs in the opposite direction of the rest of the offense, generally with no blockers.

Sporting Charts explains Naked Bootleg

The naked bootleg can be considered a trick play as the quarterback will often hide the football (like bootleggers would hide alcohol).  It usually catches a defense off guard and is mostly used in goal line or short yardage situations.
