In college football, there are good catches, there are great catches, there are ridiculous catches...and then there's what Marshall wide receiver Aaron Dobson did against East Carolina on Saturday.
Sure, Dobson's numbers—four catches for 110 yards and two touchdowns—were pretty, but nobody outside of Huntington, West Virginia would've cared had it not been for his one-handed touchdown grab to tie the game at 17 in the second quarter.
And not just any one-handed touchdown grab, but a reverse one-handed touchdown grab, as in the dude reached out with his right hand, pinned the ball against his forearm and somehow was able to hang onto the rock through the catch by bringing it into his side.
Oh, and did I mention that Dobson was being held by the ECU corner charged with trying to stop him?
Now, I could try to diminish just how impressive this grab was by telling you that Dobson's a big guy (6'3", 203 pounds) who used to play basketball, so he's got big hands and should be able to make acrobatic catches and so on and so forth.
But, really, why bother? This might just be the catch of the year. I'll have to compare it a bit more closely, side by side with Nelson Rosario's around-the-defender gem against Houston.
Until then, enjoy, be amazed, but, please, don't try it at home. You'll only embarrass yourself.
