Ohio State WR Noah Brown is the early leader for catch of the year for his ridiculous touchdown against Oklahoma.
It was one of Brown’s four touchdown catches against the Sooners in Ohio State’s 45-24 rout. To help honor Brown for his play and his return from injury, Ohio State put together a video that features highlights and a sit-down interview.
Brown missed the 2015 season due to a leg injury, a setback he said makes him appreciate football that much more.
“It was definitely a difficult process, but I feel like at the end of it I came out a stronger person,” Brown said in the video.
“It makes you appreciate going out there every day. Practice may feel like a drag sometimes, but when you go out there one day and you can’t practice anymore, it’s that much more painful. It really made me appreciate the game.”

Brown, who has 134 yards and 5 touchdowns this season, also spoke highly of QB J.T. Barrett and coach Urban Meyer. Brown said while some places focus on telling recruits about all the fun they will have, that’s not the way for Meyer.
“He looks you in your eyes and tells you it’s going to be hard,” Brown said. “There’s going to be times you want to quit. I feel like you will get exposed if you’re fake, if you don’t work hard. It’ll get exposed pretty quickly.”
OK. It's been too long since @Nb_Eight0 has scored.
Just for fun, let's watch all 4 of his touchdowns again. pic.twitter.com/F9RNaQCk29
