Dummy describes the deception employed when a player lets the ball run past him or through his legs to a team mate.

The most important player in the dummy movement is a player behind who is about to receive a pass.

As the pass is played, the receiving player must call out “dummy” in order to tell the receiving player to leave the ball and let it run through.
