On Thursday night, the College Football Awards took place in Atlanta, honoring the nation’s top players.
However, one man who did not receive recognition on the sport’s biggest stage was Michigan placeholder and backup quarterback Garrett Moores. That didn’t stop Moores from claiming one of college football’s most prestigious honors, however, the 2016 Peter Mortell Holder of the Year Award.
Thanks to Moores’ beautiful placeholding this season, Michigan kicker Kenny Allen converted 52-of-52 extra point attempts.
Allen missed four field goals, but that’s all on him.
Just watch Moores’ picture perfect highlight reel:

That’s some quality holding, folks.
And if that didn’t impress you, Moores’ acceptance speech for the Holder of the Year Award certainly will.

They always say that special teamers are a unique bunch of people, but we’re not mad at them for it.
Thanks for the laughs, Garrett, and enjoy the award.
