Spurs Up Play of the Game: Alshon Jeffery's One-Handed Touchdown

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
We were fortunate to have several great plays to choose from today, but the one play that wowed everyone in Williams-Brice Stadium this afternoon is our Spurs Up Play of the Game. Just a few minutes into the fourth quarter, Alshon Jeffery hauled in a 32 yard pass from Connor Shaw with just one hand.

"It was pretty amazing. I was in awe after he caught that," said Shaw after the game. "It's pretty common in practice but him making that catch was unbelievable...I went to congratulate him after it, I was really proud for him. It was a great catch."

The score moved Alshon one closer to tying Sidney Rice's all-time touchdown receptions record at Carolina (23).

"In practice, as receivers, we just try to make catches all the time," said Jeffery. "They pick at me a lot because they say I make a lot of one-handed catches. It was a great throw and I just made a great play."
