Houston junior DB Trevon Stewart gave us the football equivalent of Harry Doyle’s legendary “Juuuust a bit outside” with a poorly-timed jump on Thursday night.
Just before halftime of BYU’s 33-25 win over Houston, BYU completed a deep pass down the left sideline to Mitchell Juergens. As you can see in the video, a complete lack of awareness by Stewart allowed the pass to be completed. The guy jumped up to defend the pass well after Juergens caught the ball and began going with it. Stewart’s blunder actually turned out to be a good thing for his team because they stripped Juergens, returned the ball into BYU territory, and then completed a touchdown pass just before the half ended.
I bet when Stewart plays baseball he swings when the ball is already in the catcher’s mitt.
