Will Grier once threw for 837 yards and 10 touchdowns ... in a single high school game. But what the Florida freshman quarterback did Monday has gotten him even more national attention.

Grier, a four-star recruit out of North Carolina who is in a battle for the Gators' backup job, posted a video on Instagram that showed him catching a football and doing a backflip. At the same time. It quickly went viral.

We aren't sure if this will help him move up the Florida depth chart (one of the quarterbacks he's competing against his Skylar Mornhinweg, son of New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg), but it should help him become known as something more than Taylor Walker's boyfriend.
