Tennessee Football Fan Shows Impressive Catching and Throwing Skills

An extra-point kick gave a Tennessee college football fan the chance to show some impressive catching and throwing skills when the ball came his way during a game against the Florida Gators in Knoxville on September 24.

J Ashley E Holcombe said he began recording as the kick was being taken, “to show people how awesome our seats are in the end zone”. He said he “never imagined” he’d end up with “such a hit”, with his video showing the happy fan plucking the ball from the air and then showing a decent arm to send it all the way back to the field.
