Trey Griffey caught the first touchdown pass of his Arizona career in Tuesday's AdvoCare V100 Bowl with his father, Ken Griffey Jr., behind an end zone with a camera.

Griffey made a leaping grab on the 26-yard pass from quarterback BJ Denker to give the Wildcats a 21-6 lead over Boston College at the end of the first quarter.

However his dad, the former Seattle Mariners legend who finished his career with 13 All-Star appearances and 630 homers, was stationed in the other end zone's photography area. But in the fourth quarter of Arizona's blowout 42-19 win, Trey Griffey caught a second touchdown pass, this one in the end zone in front of his dad.

After not making a catch in any of Arizona's first nine games, Griffey had 11 catches in the past three games for the Wildcats, including three for 25 yards in Arizona's upset win over Oregon.

For those of us children of the 1990s, it's jarring to see Ken Griffey Jr.'s son playing college football. He was the epitome of baseball cool for many of us when we were kids. And Trey's not the only son of a famous 1990s era athlete to make his mark for a Pac-12 team this year either. Barry Sanders' son, Barry Sanders Jr., displayed some quick feet reminiscent of his father earlier this season against Washington State.
