As we speak, the University of Louisvlle and University of Kentucky are battling it out for state bragging rights.

Louisville wide receiver DeVante Parker is certainly doing his part.

Late in the second quarter as Louisville was driving down field, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater tossed a perfect (seriously, what a throw) pass into the end zone from about 20 yards out. It was third down, so there was no room for mistakes – catch it or you’re stuck with a field goal.

Catch it, Parker did.

The talented wide out elevated with superhero like powers, reaching behind himself (the throw sailed just a bit) to grab the rock, all of this while trying to keep a foot in bounds as two Kentucky defenders converged on him, hitting him as he can down with the ball.

It was nothing for Parker though, he kept his feet in bounds, held onto the ball and scored the touchdown, giving Louisville a 10-3 lead at the time.

Great play by all involved, really, even the defense who despite giving up the touchdown, had him smothered.
