This was the Play Of the Day (POD) for our Saturday pickup touch football games on September 8, 2007:
Ben was a machine last week, making catches on stop routes, crossing routes, post routes, and deep fly routes.
It was on one of those fly routes that he made the Play of the Day. With a defender running stride for stride with him all the way down the field, the quarterback threw to Ben even though he looked to be absolutely covered. But Ben didn’t give anything away as he approached the end zone and the ball. It was only at the last second that he turned to the ball, brought up his hands, and plucked it from the air, giving his defender no hint that the ball was near.
