Grambling wide receiver Verlan Hunter had what some might consider the catch of the year in the Celebration Bowl
It’s time to get the college football bowl season off the ground and running Saturday, and of course it all started with the Celebration Bowl between Grambling and North Carolina Central. And right off the bat, this game gave us one of the plays that we will definitely remember the most from this college football postseason.
With the fourth quarter just underway on Saturday and Grambling up 10-3 looking to extend their lead, Tigers quarterback Devante Kincade rolled to the right looking to get the ball down the field. He saw Verlan Hunter in his sights, but he overshot the pass just a tad.
However, that was no issue for Hunter, who simply just went ALL the way up and came down with one of the best one-handed catches that you will ever see … period.
OH. MY. GOD.
There is just so much greatness about this catch that you don’t even know where to begin. First off, those were some serious ups that Hunter had there. Then, how in the world was he able to snag that ball with one hand?
Now the worst part about all of this as the catch ended up not counting following a holding flag. But really, I mean, they should have just let Hunter have this one on the degree of difficulty. The holding penalty should have just not mattered at all following this insanity.
Still, penalty aside, this was one of the best catches that we have ever seen, and no one will ever forget that they saw this happen.
