After seeing this play, it's safe to say that the Minnesota Golden Gophers' Maxx Williams is one of the most athletic tight ends in the country.

In the third quarter of the 2015 Citrus Bowl against the Missouri Tigers, Williams caught a pass in the middle of the field and then had to find his way to get past a few defenders. That's when his hurdling skills came in handy.

That's as good of a play as you will see. He hurdled not one, but two defenders on his way into the end zone.

Williams' 54-yard touchdown gave the Golden Gophers a 14-13 lead early in the second half.
