I have written about an NFL game twice today, but moments ago I saw what is one of the most amazing plays in any sport! A young high school Defensive lineman is now a player that a lot of teams are going to want and may even be a model for coaching staff to work with! Why? Because he intercepted a Quarterback who was spiking the ball to stop the clock! So what do you think?

Why is that so impressive? You will see equivalent intercepts in rugby matches on a regular basis, and if a player mucks up the "play the ball" in Rugby League that is what he could expect to happen (it would be a foul if an opposing player dived in during a regular move). I reckon that fans of American Football would be highly impressed by either code of Rugby - it has much more variety, free-flowing action that lasts for more than 10 seconds at a time, and you can actually see the players instead of their helmets and body armour!

In American Football that move requires him to move immediately after the snap of the ball by the center who is usually much larger than he is. For him to do what he did he would have less than 1 second to go 2+ yards navigating under a player without touching him. Upon accomplishing that navigate the exact position of the football without seeing it AND catch it before it hits the ground without making contact with the Quarterback.

@Berniezeitler Well - now that you put it like that! Another question though - given that this move is possible, is it one that is often attempted? If not, do you think it will be in future?

@indexer I would not be surprised if it began being 'taught' as a technique, however it would seem quite risky as the timing has to be such to avoid being off sides, roughing the passer or about 3 other potential penalties which would result in moving the ball and getting a fresh set of downs on top of stopping the clock.
