Arena Football League Player Hauls in Touchdown Catch While Flipping over Wall

Kyle NewportFeatured Columnist IVJanuary 23, 2017

Catching a pass for a touchdown is rarely easy, so doing it while flipping over a wall just adds to the degree of difficulty.

New Orleans VooDoo receiver Courtney Smith showed everyone that scoring a touchdown in the Arena Football League can be tough. While running to the corner of the end zone against the Jacksonville Sharks, Smith managed to haul in the pass and hold on to the football while flipping over the wall.

A couple of Sharks players tried to convince the referee that Smith dropped the ball, but the referee wasn't buying it.
