This college kid’s dive-somersault-strut catch is the best snag of 2013 so far


There are only so many ways to make an impressive diving catch in the outfield, but here's one you'll remember: N.C. State's Brett Williams with a flawless lay out into a tuck, followed by a somersault and a pop back up to his feet. He closes with a flawless (and well-earned strut) reminiscent of the WWE's dearly departed Mr. Perfect.

While this is undoubtedly the highlight of Williams' career (that we know of, anyway), he's an integral part of the No. 10-ranked Wolfpack. According to the school, he's reached base in 15 of his last 18 at-bats. He's only six games back from a torn ACL, and while plays like that probably put his doctors' hearts in their throats, they amaze the heck out of the rest of us.

N.C. State won the game over New Mexico State, 9-2, and now sports a 6-1 record.
