(Video) Yeah, This Double Deflection Catch From HS Football Game Is Pretty Nice

Not too shabby. The outstanding play where a ball gets deflected not once, but twice before settling into a receiver’s hands comes courtesy of Sean Modster, a wide receiver from Santa Margarita (Calif.) High which occurred during the team’s game against Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco Prep last Friday night.

The magic happened when Santa Margarita QB Johnny Stanton, dropped back and rolled out for a pass during the team’s 28-20 victory. The first of the aforementioned deflections was by Modster himself. The ball then caroms off his hands and into the hands of a St. John Bosco defensive player, who cannot come up with the interception, instead altering the ball’s trajectory back into the vicinity of Modster, who pulls down the catch. Certainly one of the stranger — and most impressive — catches I have seen in some time.  But then again, I’m easily impressed…ooh look! Puffy clouds!
