Aussie school soccer star Thomas Yassmin’ is making his presence felt in American soccer’s prestigious Rose Bowl, hauling in Utah’s first landing.
The Utah tight finish had a right away influence after coming into the sport for the primary time within the second quarter, placing the Utes on the board towards Penn State.
Yassmin took a one-yard catch from quarterback Cam Rising to make the landing, sending the ESPN commentary right into a spin
“The previous rugby participant from Australia who knew nothing about soccer, made a giant play in Dalton Kincaid’s absence,” ESPN commentator Kirk Herbstreit stated.
“He’s been requested to step up, he secures that ball (from the throw), falls and that’s a landing.
“He seems to be like Derrick Henry (Tennessee Titans working again) taking part in rugby, he throws round a lot smaller guys. He’s bought sturdy fingers too.”
Yassmin has performed extra video games for the Utes within the final 4 months than his final 4 years after tight ends Dalton Kincaid and Brant Kuithe went down injured.
Tuesday morning’s landing takes his tally to 6 from Yassmin’s final six video games.
Yassmin, 23, was a GPS schoolboy rugby star, and on the radar of NRL golf equipment, earlier than he moved to Salt Lake Metropolis to pursue his dream of taking part in within the NFL.
