WATCH: Ole Miss WR makes incredible catch over defender

  D.K. Metcalf made an incredible catch by trapping the ball on a defender.

Former NFL wide receiver David Tyree's acrobatic catch in Super Bowl XLII will live on in infamy after he trapped a pass from Eli Manning against his helmet, setting up the New York Giants' game-winning touchdown against the New England Patriots in 2008. On Saturday, Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf did his best impression – with a little twist.
