Have You Seen This? Quarterback tosses touchdown using sorcery

THE GRIDIRON — In the age of innovative quarterbacks such as Patrick Mahomes, we've grown accustomed to unconventional touchdown passes. But every so often, a pass comes along that still leaves you in awe — and somewhat perplexed.

One such play occurred during the recent Villanova game against Delaware. I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you weren't watching it (unless you happen to be a fan of the Colonial Athletic Association).

Only a few minutes remained in the game, and Villanova trailed by two touchdowns. Quarterback Daniel Smith drove his team down the field and hoped to make it a one-score game.

After taking the snap, Smith moved to the right side of the field and waited for a receiver to get open. A defender took him down, but not before the ball magically left Smith's hand and ended up in the hands of tight end Charlie Gilroy.

Even Mahomes himself took notice of the play. "Man that is some crazy stuff," tweeted the former NFL MVP.

Smith's play might not have been enough to earn his team a victory, but it certainly turned some heads.
