VIDEO: Pinball pick-six for Mercer's Alex Avant
There's a lot going on in this highlight of a pick-six for FCS Mercer.
A truly great pop song -- like, say, the New Pornographers' "Letter From an Occupant" -- is often great because of many different elements all coming together: a huge opening hook, engaging verses, explosive chorus, killer bridge, and finally a burn-it-all-down crescendo.
That's what we thought about watching this pick-six by Mercer's Alex Avant in an FCS game vs. Drake this past weekend. There's the initial cat-like deflection, the second deflection and bounce into Avant's arms, the insane escape along the sideline and finally the mad dash to the end zone.
So yes, we're holding up this metaphorical lighter for you, Mr. Avant:
