‘He’s an athletic freak’: USC freshman Michael Trigg drops jaws at fall practice

Michael Trigg still has a lot to learn about USC’s playbook and the particulars of his new position, but as a short pass to the flat began to sail over his head at Tuesday’s practice, the freshman’s instincts took over.

A pass that should’ve soared incomplete above the tight end’s head was instead miraculously snagged from midair with just one hand. As he pulled down Jaxson Dart’s errant pass, Trigg dodged one tackle — then lowered his shoulder through another. It ultimately took a pack of Trojan defenders to pull the freshman down — and only after he’d dragged half the defense to a 20-yard gain.
