ANIMATED: Stephen Hill Makes Like Calvin Johnson, Julio Jones

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets receiver Stephen Hill, recently known for not being able to catch much of anything, escalated and plucked a lofted ball out of the air with one hand, pinning it against his chest as he landed. It was worth a first down, and we might've already seen the nation's catch of the weekend.

From Stephen Hill! Not Calvin Johnson or Demaryius Thomas. Pretty cool. It led to a missed field goal though, so.

Here it is, via @bubbaprog:

Actually, it calls to mind this catch by Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones -- it's not quite as jaw-dropping, but it's also in a live game, not warmups.
