The superstars are getting younger and younger.
Odell Beckham Jr. set the standard, and now a sixth grader is right behind him. He’s pretty impressive, and his name is Jordan Welch. He elevates off one foot, gets up and snags a strong ball over the middle from his quarterback.
No, he didn’t score a touchdown on the play. Nor on the play afterward. Who cares. It was the highlight that captivated and left Welch’s teammates in awe. We’re with you No. 4. That was out of sight.
Will Welch become the next great receiver? Who knows. He certainly has the talent, and the ability to rise to the occasion. We’ll see … and hopefully see more highlight reel plays like this in the years ahead.
