What Cooper Rush, Dallas Cowboys backup quarterback did in the 2018 NFL Preseason Game Against the San Francisco 49ers is not common and very notable.
Taking over for Dak Prescott, Rush was in a spread formation on 2nd and 10 with 2:34 left in the 1st Quarter of the game. Rush barked the signals, and the ball was snapped to him – and went over his head by three feet!
Cooper Rush did not at all hesitate. He caught the ball, set his feet for less than a second and then fired a pass a bit low to veteran receiver Terrance Williams. He caught it.
It was just another routine moment in the life of Cooper Rush, who went on as if nothing happened. Could Marcus Mariota do that? Well, he did.
In the 2017 AFC Wild Card game, too versus the Kansas City Chiefs. He caught his own touchdown pass. Not bad.
