UConn Player’s Trick Throw Football Video Goes Viral

STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ He may be the most famous college quarterback who’s never thrown a pass in a live game.
A video of trick throws by University of Connecticut backup Johnny McEntee has rocketed around the world, racking up more than 4.1 million views on YouTube in less than a week.

The redshirt junior from Fullerton, Calif., throws a football into a garbage can from more than 40 yards away, knocks the Domino’s pizza delivery sign off a car and skeet-shoots a dinner plate.

The university says McEntee and some of his fellow Huskies filmed the video on Feb. 5 at several sites around the Storrs campus. UConn also says McEntee freely admits that not every throw was successful on the first try.
