In his time at Ohio State, DeVier Posey was one of the top deep threats in college football.
Not much has changed these days for Posey, as the former Ohio State receiver is still catching deep passes for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League. In fact, Posey set a CFL Grey Cup record on Sunday, as the wideout hauled in a 100-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Ricky Ray.

Posey’s catch came on the biggest stage of them all in the CFL, as the Grey Cup is the championship game of the league. It was the longest catch in the 109-year history of the Grey Cup. While it is important to note that CFL fields are 110 yards long rather than the 100-yard fields used in American football, it doesn’t take away from the Posey’s incredible touchdown.
Posey finished the game with 7 receptions for 175 yards and that touchdown, helping the Argonauts win the Grey Cup with a 27-24 victory over the Calgary Stampeders. Posey was deservedly named the MVP of the CFL championship.

In his second season with Toronto, Posey had 52 receptions for 744 yards and 7 touchdowns this season.
Posey played at Ohio State under former coach Jim Tressel from 2008-12, and finished his Buckeye career with 136 catches, 1,955 yards and 18 touchdowns in 42 total games with Ohio State. He played just over two seasons in the NFL with the Houston Texans.
