Trae Young is always in the right place at the right time

The Sooners Cornerback D.J. Graham made a miraculous interception high up in the air, reminding the commentators of Odell Beckham Jr. in his rookie year. “Oh, what an interception,” the commentator screamed. “Oh my gosh, DJ Graham. Gimme that Odell.”

People in the stadium couldn’t just believe what they had seen, and their jaws were left open not only inside the stadium but all over the United States as the video went viral within minutes. This definition of an ice-cold interception has no answers to it but only wows to receive.

Trae Young took to Twitter to share his in-witness account of the splendid catch made by the cornerback. The NBA star wrote in all Caps, “THAT DIFFERENT BOY… INT OF THE YEAR!!!”

Although it was not just the catch that went viral, but also the reaction given by the Sooners quarterback Spencer Rattler, who was just shell-shocked with what he had just seen.

“It just happened, I can’t really explain it,” Graham said. “I just tried to catch it… I was like, ‘OK, I still got it, I still got the receiver hands.'”

“With the ball that high, I’m not thinking about batting it down,” he further adds. “Maybe if it was a little bit lower, I might have batted it down. With a jump ball like that, I think my instincts took over. I was just deciding if I should go up with two hands or one hand.”
