“We’d been watching film so I knew when (the quarterback) moved out about two yards that it was going to be a pitch play. I shot the gap and (the ball) just landed in my hands,” Page told Erie Times-News.

Page is listed on his Hudl highlights page as a cornerback and wide receiver for Cathedral Prep. He’s in the class of 2023. In the game against Meadville, he accounted for three scores, including the perfectly timed play. He had a fumble recovery for a touchdown and a 15-yard touchdown catch.
