Illinois Receiver Hauls in 25-Yard Touchdown Catch While Lying on Ground (GIF)


The University of Illinois has endured a rough season, stumbling to a 4-7 record, and in their final game of the season the Illini are still taking it lying down — only this time, they’re doing that literally.

But every team has their bright spots, and U of I receiver Steve Hull provided one of the brightest on Saturday afternoon while taking on Northwestern. The receiver took a fall while running his route, ending up on his rear end in the end zone, and with some accidental magic that proved to be the perfect position to haul in a 25-yard touchdown catch from Nathan Scheelhaase.

Check out Hull showing off his ground game in the GIF below.
