September 13, 2023—Academy @ Shawnee junior Khamoni Ball says one of his favorite things to practice is catching a football. 

"I like to catch," Ball said. "Like, when I'm not in, I'm on the sideline with the quarterback, catching one-handed all practices. Like, it's natural." 

Practice made perfect this past Friday when Ball made a leaping one-handed interception in a game against Jackson County. 

That play landed him on the ESPN NFL Sunday Countdown segment, "You Got Mossed."
