Baylor commit K.D. Cannon, from Mount Pleasant (Tx.) High School, pulled off an incredible catch in quadruple coverage that has to be seen to be believed. What the quarterback was thinking throwing this desperation heave is beyond me.

This wide receiver is literally in the definition of quadruple coverage. As he leaps into the air to catch the pass it looks like the safety comes across and hits him in the lower half of his body.

This causes him to flip and the women in the crowd to shriek. He gets up immediately ball in his hand showing he maintained possession and looking impressive.

Frotunately he spun enough that he didn’t land on his head when coming down like fictional wide receiver Rod Tidwell did in Jerry Maguire. Instead his body was almost parallel to the ground when he landed.

From [h/t] Bleacher Report:

Yahoo! Sports’ Cameron Smith spotted this video of Mount Pleasant (Tx.) High School’s star receiver catching a ball surrounded by four defenders.
