Amon-Ra St. Brown excites the NFL. The German-American amazes the assembled football elite with a spectacular catch at the Pro Bowl. Incidentally, the wide receiver of the Detroit Lions is still making history.
The assembled NFL elite is amazed. Football pro Amon-Ra St. Brown wins the Best Catch contest at the Pro Bowl Games in Las Vegas.
The Detroit Lions wide receiver was invited as a substitute to the league’s All-Star event, becoming the first German footballer ever to be nominated for the Pro Bowl.
There he made a powerful impression with a spectacularly caught ball. The fact that the German-American was in the final of the Best Catch competition was not a matter of course due to the fan voting.
After all, he played against the best receivers in the league. In the finals, he outdid the Buffalo Bills’ Stefon Diggs.
St. Brown dove impressively over the Lions mascot and then caught a pass in flight from his brother Equanimeous, who had previously caught the ball himself from quarterback legend Michael Vick and continued to throw it from the air. Equanimeous plays for the Chicago Bears in the NFL.
The jury around rapper Snoop Dogg and comedy star Pete Davidson agreed: St. Brown was the deserved winner.
The 23-year-old has had a strong season in the NFL, scoring six touchdowns. He narrowly missed the playoffs with Detroit.
In the overall standings of the Pro Bowl games, St. Brown won with the National Football Conference (NFC) All-Star team against the American Football Conference 35-33.
