Watch It Here

Many will remember Prothro as the guy who made the original "helmet catch," cradling the ball against the helmet of a Southern Miss on a pre-halftime Hail Mary in 2005. He was not so lucky a month later. He landed awkwardly after hauling in a pass against Florida and completely fractured his tibia and fibula in his left leg. After three surgeries and years of rehab, Prothro was forced to quit football without ever being able to suit up for another game.
