At first glance, Jakcob Dean might stand out most for the way he spells his first name. That just distracts from his talent as a receiver, as he showed on the catch below.
The miraculous grab above, from Dean's Norman (Okla.) High's loss to Edmond (Okla.) Santa Fe High, showcases just what makes Dean so special. He has speed, but that's not as important as his hands, which are positively best-in-class.
After all, not many receivers would be able to bring in a ball thrown 2 yards behind them while on the ground.
In fact, the only way Dean could have made the grab more memorable would have been to make it in the end zone. That's clearly what Dean and his Norman teammates had in mind when the ball went up, the pass just never made it there.
No matter, Dean was on the case, setting Norman up with a first-and-goal on the 2-yard line. The junior receiver did go on to grab a pass in the end zone, though his lone truly notable grab was the one that fell just short of paydirt.
In the end, Santa Fe proved too tough for Norman, eking out a tight, 27-21 win, but the Tigers can at least reflect on one magical grab in the setback.
