Huskers' Westerkamp on behind-the-back catch: 'It was all luck'
Nebraska's Jordan Westerkamp said of his amazing behind-the-back catch vs. FAU that 'it was all luck.'
The most jaw-dropping highlight of college football's Week 1 belonged to Nebraska's Jordan Westerkamp, whose stunning behind-the-back reception in the Huskers' 55-7 demolition of FAU has been a staple of TV highlight shows since the moment he made it.

"It was all luck," he said.
First of all: here's a guess that very, very few receivers have the kind of quick-twitch reflexes to get so lucky. Second: is it really luck when you're now making an outright habit of mind-blowing receptions? You may remember Westerkamp from a certain Nebraska play from 2013:

Do you have a favorite? Westerkamp says he does not.
"I try to not look too much into that stuff," he told the AP. "It was a great team win. I just want to contribute as much as possible to the team for our success."
In short: there's humble, there's super-humble, and then there's Jordan Westerkamp.
