WATCH: Jager Burton makes ridiculous one-handed grab for pick-six

Kentucky football commit Jager Burton is a freak-of-nature athlete, that’s been made clear for years. Standing 6-foot-4, 271 pounds and ranked as high as No. 59 in the class of 2021, it’s no surprise that the Wildcats had to fight off the likes of Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Oregon to earn his commitment on August 30.

In a matchup against the Ballard Bruins out of Louisville, KY this past weekend, Burton proved his status as a can’t-miss athlete even further.

Typically known for his vicious pancake blocks and creating open rushing lanes for his running backs, the Kentucky commit pulled a new trick out of his bag in the form of a one-handed interception on the defensive line.

With Ballard attempting a bubble screen from its own 36, Burton snagged the pass behind the line of scrimmage and returned it for a touchdown.

Take a look at the replay from Michael C. Wells Photography:

Burton’s pick-six pushed the Frederick Douglass lead to 49-21 late in the fourth quarter, securing the blowout victory.

With the win, Douglass moves to 1-1 on the year, with a home matchup against Grant County scheduled for Friday, Oct. 2 at 7:30 p.m. ET.

As for the hometown prospect specifically, Kentucky got itself a good one in Burton.

      Agreed! I’m watching MNF and there’s a future for big dudes who can catch and block.
