Watch: Isaiah Ford breaks Virginia Tech’s receiving TD record with amazing catch

Isaiah Ford caps impressive night with an amazing grab that puts him in the school records book.


Isaiah Ford continued to build his impressive college resume as the wide receiver set the Virginia Tech school record for receiving touchdowns with an amazing catch Thursday versus Pittsburgh.

Ford was working one-on-one on the outside against freshman Pittsburgh cornerback Dane Jackson. Ford was able to snag a back-shoulder throw from quarterback Jerod Evans while sliding in the end zone near the pylon. The grab was his 23rd career touchdown reception, breaking the school record previously held by Antonio Freeman.

Freeman sent his congrats to Ford on Twitter.

The catch capped an incredible night for Ford. He had 10 catches for 143 yards in addition to his touchdown, as the Hokies topped the Panthers 39-36 to improve to 3-0 within the ACC Coastal division and 4-1 in ACC play.

Ford now sets his sights on two other receiving school records. He is eight receptions and 363 yards shy of surpassing Jarrett Boykin to become the school’s all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards.
