Jon Beason was a man amongst boys when he was at Miami playing linebacker, and in 2005, he proved that.
After a loss to FSU to begin the 2005 season, the Hurricanes rebounded with a triple-overtime thrilling victory at Clemson. The next week, in their home opener, Miami hosted Colorado on a steamy day in the Orange Bowl.
En route to a 23-3 win, the Canes defense gave us a play to remember.
After CU quarterback Joel Klatt mishandled a snap, Miami DL Kareem Brown picked the ball up, and could only manage a few yards in the South Florida sun before handing the ball off to backer Leon Williams. As Williams is heading to the end zone, enter Jon Beason.
@joelklatt hey Joel! Just wondering, do you ever think about this hit? pic.twitter.com/IWH2EfiRKr— Bring Issiah Walker to Miami (@hurricanesmarsh) May 22, 2019
One of the great decleaters in UM history, Beason levitated Klatt into the Rocky Mountains. Also, the fact that Klatt is a big time guy on TV makes this so much better.
