Marquez North makes incredible one-handed catch for Tennessee (Video)
Tennessee wide receiver Marquez North made the catch of the weekend on Saturday during an upset win over No. 11 South Carolina. With the Vols trailing 21-20 and facing a 3rd and 10 in their own territory, quarterback Justin Worley threw a bomb down the left sideline into single coverage. North, a true freshman, somehow pinned the ball against his body around the defender’s arm and came down with the pass.
The 39-yard hookup put Tennessee deep into South Carolina territory and set up an eventual chip shot field goal as time expired. The Vols came away with a shocking 23-21 victory.
At 6-foot-4, 214 pounds, North is one of the most exciting players Tennessee has on offense. His big-play ability was on full display on Saturday as he hauled in three catches for 102 yards. His catch, given the importance, was right up there with this one-handed touchdown grab as one of the plays of the year.
