High school receiver falls at 6-yard line, still catches touchdown

It’s not every day you see a high school receiver making NFL-level catches.

But the grab that Trill Williams made over the weekend was something that many pro receivers wouldn’t be able to pull off.

Despite tripping at the six-yard line, the Stepinac (N.Y.) senior and Syracuse commit somehow found his way into the end zone thanks to his forward momentum.

And despite laying flat on his back, Williams also somehow found a way to catch the ball upon arriving in the end zone.

This is one touchdown catch that has to be seen to be believed.


“I tripped and then I looked up and saw the ball coming at me,” Williams told lohud.com. “I’m like ‘This is a gift.'”

Williams, who missed his junior season with a torn ACL, caught three touchdowns and intercepted a pass as Stepinac beat Canisus 49-28 for the New York Catholic school state championship on Saturday. The unbelievable grab was so good it made No. 1 on ESPN’s Top 10 plays over the weekend.

You see a lot of “catch of the year” teases on the Internet, but this honestly feels like that’s impervious to exaggeration.

Indeed, if any catch ever deserved a GIF so we could see it again and again, it’s this one.

Eat your heart out, Odell Beckham.
