shoeshine
 n.— «Jordan also employs a cut block that Wildcats offensive lineman refer to as the “shoeshine.” That is when the blocker hits the defensive player near the knees to knock him over instead of taking him head-on. “I love the shoeshine,” said Jordan. “You can usually take out three or four guys at a time. Once one goes down, the others follow.”» —“Senters of Attention” by David Willis in Haverhill Eagle-Tribune (North Andover, Massachusetts) Nov. 6, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
