This was the Play Of the Day (POD) for our Saturday pickup touch football games on August 25, 2007:
It was third down and his team was at midfield, facing a stingy defense. Under pressure, his quarterback tossed it up with a prayer into double coverage.
With one defender in front of him and one over the top, Adam leaped into the air between them and found four hands on the ball; one each belonging to the defenders and two were Adam’s own. But Adam clamped on and despite the ball being batted by two defenders, by the time his feet touched the ground he had sole possession of the ball.
The deep defender’s momentum carried him upfield, away from Adam who was now alone to turn upfield and race to the end zone for the score.
