If you watched college football this past weekend, there’s probably a pretty good chance the NCAA Division II battle between LIU Post and Shippensburg University game wasn’t high on the priority list. It was a pretty incredible game, however, and it produced perhaps the best play of the entire weekend.
Just before halftime, with the Shippensburg Raiders orchestrating a drive at midfield, quarterback Brycen Mussina was pressured, but still had time to get off a throw down the field. The only problem was LIU Post Pioneers sophomore defensive back Nazir Streater was there to make an unbelievable one-handed interception that would make New York Giants superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. blush.
The best part? The interception completely changed the momentum of the game, leading to a LIU Post 43-yard field goal that gave the Pioneers a 15-14 advantage as the second quarter expired.
LIU Post ultimately topped Shippensburg in a 41-39 thriller at SUSAF at Seth Grove in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.
A 5-foot-10, 185-pound defensive back from Palmyra, N.J., Streater led the Pioneers with six tackles and the acrobatic interception that was featured on ESPN’s Sportscenter Top 10 plays.
Streater is no stranger to producing highlight-reel plays. He was a two-way star for Camden Catholic High School in New Jersey before making an immediate impact at LIU Post.
As a freshman in 2017, Streater was named to the NE10 All-Rookie Team. He played in nine games and finished with 34 total tackles, including 27 solo, and led the Pioneers with two fumble recoveries. He also had seven kick returns for 238 yards and a 99-yard touchdown return against Saint Anselm.
A lot of people might know who Streater was before this weekend, but everyone should know his name now because that interception is as good as it gets.
