No. 6 – Grant catches pass while lying flat on the ground.

Late in the 4th quarter of a tie game against West Virginia in 2014, Texas Tech was facing a 3rd – and-10 from its own 30-yard-line. Under heavy pressure, quarterback Davis Webb made a poor decision that turned out well.

The sophomore quarterback lofted a soft pass in the direction of Grant hoping the 5-foot-7 receiver could make a play. As the ball was in the air, Grant’s feet became tangled with the feet of the defender and Grant went down to the ground.

Somehow, Grant landed on his back right where the ball came down. While much of this play can be attributed to luck, Grant’s awareness and ability to see the ball and still make the grab was incredible.

Unfortunately, Texas Tech would be forced to punt on the drive and West Virginia won the game on a last-second field goal from somewhere south of Tahoka. But Jakeem Grant’s prone third-down catch is a play unlike any most Red Raider fans have ever seen.
