    In high school game. Hook and ladder.
    Quarterback throws eight yard pass to a receiver who laterals to another receiver, who runs for 49 yards for a touchdown.

    Who gets what for stats?

    Hook and ladder is an appropriate name for the play ... hook and lateral is the technical name

    A hook and ladder is a fire truck.

    The technical name is commonly referred to as the appropriate name.

    Hook and ladder is how the play is drawn up - one man hooks, the other one is climbing up a ladder ... at least that's how it was explained to me.

    Sorry, but I just can't see how "ladder" describes any action involved in the play. Ladder implies some sort of upward movement, which rarely occurs on a football field.

    "Hook and lateral" perfectly describes the play. Receiver runs a hook, catches ball and tosses a lateral to the trailer.

    I have to think the term "ladder" came from some stupid, lazy TV announcer.

    third time this question has been asked in about a month!!!

    Doesn't anyone read stats manuals anymore? Or is it just to damn easy to come on here and ask the forum?

    Jeez people, do your damn jobs, or at least learn to use the search function on these boards before you ask us to do your job.
