There’s no question that Odell Beckham’s all-timer of a touchdown grab during the Giants’ victory against the Cowboys in January has launched a million would-be imitators. The latest comes from the player who isn’t a receiver at all, but it’s still a very, very good one.
The player you see pulling off the picture perfect interception of a pass above is Lake Norman defensive back and wide receiver David Gonzalez. He tapped into his skills from the latter starting position to help him with the former on a recent interception during a game against North Carolina rival Hunter Huss.
While matching up against a HH receiver, Gonzalez got in front of him and then went airborne, reaching out to snag the pass in midair while at full extension. The interception was nothing short of magical, with Gonzalez leaving coaches and other staff on the Lake Norman sideline completely stunned. Like this guy, for instance:
That is some interception, and it helped pace Lake Norman to a big, 20-6 win over the Huskies. It may not be a genuine Beckham catch, but it was certainly Beckham worthy.
