Found August 26, 2013 on FatManWriting:
It was a good that I ended up being a big guy otherwise there would not have been much use for me on a football field. I'm not fast (the size sure didn't help), and my hand-eye coordination is terrible. Whenever I played backyard football growing up if the quarterback didn't hit me in the hands there wasn't a chance in he** I was catching it. It's that experience that helps me appreciate the intense concentration--not to mention hand-eye coordination--that Wolverines wide receiver Joe Reynolds displayed in this play. @umichfootball/Twitter
