Watch: high schooler completes insane one-handed backflip catch

Saturday May 23rd, 2015

Wow. Wow, wow wow. 

Just when you thought Odell Beckham Jr. had redefined acrobatic catches forever, this guy does something like this and throws everything you thought you knew ever-so-slightly out of whack.

This guy is Marco Wilson, a high school junior from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. whose reported offers include Auburn, Florida and South Carolina. He plays cornerback, stands 5'10", and can do stuff like...oh, doing a backflip into a one-handed grab of a football and sticking the landing.

Try not to let this loop more than like three times. We dare you. Bet you can't. The slow-motion and exhilarated cry from behind the camera at the end make it worth it.

And yes, we know nobody is guarding him.
