Watch: UNC WR Ryan Switzer does backflip while catching football

Thursday May 7th, 2015

Just call it the month of wide receivers making backflip catches. 

North Carolina wide receiver Ryan Switzer is one of the most dynamic talents in college football, and he's eager to show it. 

As a freshman in 2013, Switzer's elusiveness and speed on special teams produced five punt return touchdowns—three shy of the NCAA career mark held by Wes Welker of Texas Tech and Antonio Perkins of Oklahoma.

But Switzer's got skills as a receiver as well. A lot of skills. Just check out this video of him making catches mid-air while doing backflips.

On Wednesday, St. Louis Rams receiver Stedman Bailey put his own backflip catch show. So now there's only one question left to answer—Who did it better?
