When it comes to halftime contests that involve throwing footballs, most participants opt for chest passes and underhand passes, especially in the Dr. Pepper Challenge. That is, except for Destiny Alfred. She dominated by throwing spiral after spiral straight into the can during the Pac-12 title game between the Oregon Ducks and Utah Utes, earning herself $100,000 in tuition and a boatload of respect for actually throwing overhand.
Now that's how it's done. Nothing can beat a fine-tuned spiral.
She was in the zone, too. Every throw she made was controlled and accurate, and it paid off big time.
It also was a breath of fresh air for the countless fans who were dying to see some actual football throws in this competition. In recent memory, the chest pass has largely been the form of choice for the participants.
Kudos to Destiny for showing the world how to do the job right, though, especially alongside her chest-passing opponent (who, to be fair, also kind of nailed it).
