IC Junior Skyler Kauf got his first career pick by simply picking the ball off the back of a Utica College receiver.
Here’s the video, from IC’s game this weekend against Utica:

“We wouldn’t blame you if you watched it over and over again. He literally grabbed the football off the other player’s back,” wrote NCAA.com. “It’s not a bad way to earn your first career interception.”
The video was also picked up by FoxNews, Yahoo! and a handful of other national media outlets.
Ithaca College lost the football game, however. Though rallying from a big third quarter deficit to tie the game, IC would fall to Utica in overtime 30-27 for its first loss of the season.
