SHUFFLE PASS

What is SHUFFLE PASS?

SHUFFLE PASS meaning misspelling or more accurately, a malapropism, of shovel pass; this malapropism is in the title of a DVD (Coaching the Shuffle Pass) by Perry Swindall that is published by Coaches Choice; the word “shuffle” sounds like “shovel,” but you have to not think about the source of the word to confuse the two; shovel bears resemblance to the movement involved in the pass; shuffle, which means to move sideways without crossing your ankles, has no resemblance to the shovel pass play
