Gilbert Arete Prep’s football team put a new play in last week.

It was called the “Skylar formation.”

When the small Gilbert charter school got to the opposing team’s 1-yard line last Friday night, a 5-foot-3 senior with a red, braided pony tail lined up a few yards behind the center and took the direct snap.

Skylar Nicholas followed her blockers up the middle for a touchdown in an 81-28 win over Phoenix Day School for the Deaf.

It was her only carry in the game. She also kicked nine extra points, and on a kickoff, made a touchdown-saving tackle.

But everybody was talking about that touchdown afterwards.
