300-pound Texas lineman Sam Cosmi scores touchdown on trick screen pass

Offensive linemen don’t usually get a chance to enjoy a moment of glory on the gridiron, but Texas Longhorns sophomore Sam Cosmi did on Saturday, and he took advantage.

Leading 28-17 in the fourth quarter against the West Virginia Mountaineers, Texas ran a trick play that was a screen pass to Cosmi, who lined up in a tight end spot as the third lineman on the left side. He looked great on his run after the catch.

He may be 6-foot-7 and 300 pounds, but Cosmi looked athletic as a tight end as he darted into the end zone.

The trick play to Cosmi apparently is called “Moses” and named after Cosmi’s high school offensive line coach, Todd Moses.

As you could imagine, Cosmi was “giddy” about the play.

The play worked to perfection. Texas won 42-31 and is now 4-1, while West Virginia is 3-2.
