If you’ve ever played football growing up, at some point you dreamed of playing at the highest level of the game whether in the NFL or the CFL. And no doubt you dreamed of catching passes and scoring touchdowns. That feeling of scoring the game-winning touchdown with a fingertip catch in front of a packed stadium is every young player’s fantasy.

Well, here are a few “regular Joes” trying their hand at catching passes from Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon. Think you could hold on to the ball? Take a look at these people when they give it a try.

Warren Moon was a legend in both the NFL and the CFL. In Canada with the Edmonton Eskimos he won five Grey Cup championships (1978-82) and was inducted into the CFL Hall of Fame in 2001.
