Watch: Michigan State's Tyrell Henry makes insane catch vs. CMU

Michigan State wide receiver Tyrell Henry begins moving up the field after catching a pass vs. Central Michigan. He is wearing a green helmet, green jersey, white pants and white gloves, and is bracing for impact with the ball in his right arm.

Michigan State got off to a slow start in their season-opener against Central Michigan, but sophomore wide receiver Tyrell Henry helped finish things off with a flourish for the Spartans.

Henry, appearing in his first career game for Michigan State, made an absolutely-crazy play in the fourth quarter to help put the game out of reach for the Spartans, who ultimately would cruise to a 31-7 victory.

After a 72-yard reception by Christian Kirkpatrick set up the Spartans in the red zone, Henry broke for the corner of the end zone, and Noah Kim lofted a picture-perfect ball toward the pylon.

What followed was, in a word, epic:

A defensive pass interference flag was declined on the play, but the interference and the one-handed grab were only part of what made it such an amazing catch.

The reception was actually the first of Henry’s collegiate career, and it helped boost the Spartans to a blowout victory.
