QUEENS CATHOLIC FOOTBALL TEAM PLAYS VIRTUAL GAME OF CATCH
The Diocese of Brooklyn today is releasing a video of the members of the 7th-grade football team at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Academy, located in the Bayside section of Queens, “catching up” digitally.
The video, set to the Sam Brown and Jay-Z song “On to the Next One,” shows members of the team virtually throwing the football to each other. In the video, one student is shown using hand sanitizer before virtually passing off the football to his teammate. The next player who catches the football sprays the ball with disinfectant before keeping the game of catch going.
The Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Academy football players created this unique way to play a game of virtual catch during the absence of sports due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
