WATCH: OSU's Rutschman makes second diving play on bunt in CWS

Not many catchers are as quick on their feet as Oregon State freshman Adley Rutschman.

Rutschman showed off his quick reactions with his second diving catch on an attempted bunt in this College World Series. The latest came in the first inning of Saturday's elimination game against LSU with Cole Freeman attempting to sacrifice himself to move the runner on first over to second.

That web gem comes a week after he made a similar play in his CWS debut against Cal State Fullerton last Saturday. That one went for a double play in the Beavers' 6-5 comeback victory.

Who said catchers are slow?

Of course, Rutschman is no run of the mill backstop. The 6-2, 208-pound athletic specimen is also the placekicker on Oregon State's football team. And he's not afraid to take — or give — a hit. Just look at this tackling form when Oregon State baseball clinched a trip to Omaha.

Rutschman's defensive gems haven't only come with his glove, but also with his right hand. He's nailed all four attempted base stealers so far in the CWS.
