USC football: Steven Mitchell gets rocked but holds on for the catch

Nov 29, 2014

USC receiver Steven Mitchell may have single-handedly changed the meaning of the word "tough" on this play.

In the third quarter of the USC's 49-14 win against Notre Dame, the Trojans found themselves comfortably ahead by 42 points. On the play above Mitchell goes across the middle and just gets rocked.

You got to believe he's going to feel this one in the morning, but somehow Mitchell manages to hold onto the ball to pick up a fresh set of downs for the Trojans. Really, what's most impressive is that Mitchell gets right back up as if nothing happened.

That's a bad man.
