‘Dang, I’m in the end zone’: Mo Alie-Cox’s first NFL touchdown is one for the memory books
Before Sunday, Mo Alie-Cox (B.S.’15/GPA; M.S.’17/GPA) couldn’t tell you the last time he scored a touchdown. He knows it wasn’t a reception.
“I don’t think I ever caught a touchdown pass before actually,” Alie-Cox, the Indianapolis Colts tight end, said Tuesday. “One year, maybe seventh or eighth grade, I played H-back, so I had a rushing touchdown but never a receiving touchdown.”
His first NFL score — a leaping, one-handed grab in the Colts’ 42-28 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday — likely will be easier to remember.
“Oh, definitely. I’ll probably never forget this one,” he said. “This will stick with me for a long time, especially the type of pass I caught.”
