[facebook url="" /]Leo Deveraux was having a rough Sunday.

His beloved Seattle Seahawks had just finished a rocky first quarter en route to their eventual playoff loss to the Carolina Panthers. And he had a loose tooth bothering him.

So Leo’s dad Jim decided to try a little “12th man dentistry,” as he wrote on Facebook. They tied one end of a string to a football and the other to Leo’s loose tooth, and Jim told Leo to throw a pass like Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

The trick worked, and Leo’s mom called it “the best play of the game.” Maybe Leo can use this as a tryout clip when he gets old enough.
