New Hampshire WR pulls in amazing behind-the-back TD grab

A team always wants to start the season on the right foot, but the Granite State Panthers took things to a new level for the first game of the season. Not only did the Panthers score a touchdown on their first offensive snap, they did so with one of the most eye-popping catches you'll see.

The Panthers are in their second season as a program after being founded by the parents of players who attended New Hampshire schools without football programs. The player you see pulling in the ridiculous behind-the-back 59-yard touchdown catch above is Brandon Brown, a student at Conant High School and first-year member of the Panthers. That grab was just the first salvo in a season-opening win for the Panthers, who rolled to a 21-0 blanking of Mt. Washington, a fellow team in the Independent Football League of New England.

Granite State is back in action this Sunday, hosting the Seacoast Titans. No word on whether Brown has any more theatrical receptions planned.
