The blogger left out this TD catch.

2nd Qtr

http://espn.go.com/ncf/video?gameId=312670059

(1st and 10) GEORGIA TECH drive start at 08:05.

(1st and 10) Washington, T. pass complete to Hill, S. for 59 yards to the NC0, 1ST DOWN GT, TOUCHDOWN, clock 07:57.

As I've mentioned, to defend Ga Tech triple option, teams sometimes brought the CB up to line, leaving the safety to defend any deep route from the receiver.
If the safety also bought the run, the receiver would run right past him.
This is the case where UNC brought the CB up to the line.

Hill was wide open on a simple go route along the side line.
The pass was behind where Hill had to slow down and turned his body back 90 degree (such that his shoulders were parallel to the side line) to catch the ball with both hands at chest level and pulled it in.

This one went for a TD, but he will drop a similar ball in the 4th qtr.

This was only a 29-yd pass and the QB was already short with the throw, just to make a note.
Wide-open receiver, no pressure.
