Every single game I would pray at the field goal post just prior to kickoff.

My first college career touchdown. 55 yard catch after shaking the DB who had 1 on 1 coverage with no safety help. I felt it was disrespectful, and I didn’t get the same coverage after that. It was a “This is why you’re here” moment.
