This was the Play Of the Day (POD) for our Saturday pickup touch football games on August 4, 2007:
Three receivers were lined up on the left and one receiver was lined up on the far right. The three receivers on the left did five yard stop routes and the receiver on the right did an eight yard stop route. Seeing the congestion, one of the receivers on the left cut across on a drag route.
But Sam was playing middle linebacker and like a puma on the prowl, he sniffed out something in the breeze. Reading the play perfectly, he pounced as soon as the ball left the quarterback’s hand, cut in front of the receiver coming across the field, snagged the ball out of the air, and trotted in for an easy score.
