Eugene Amano becomes first asian to catch a pass in NFL

Amano makes reception look easy. Titans center Eugene Amano made the first reception of his career against the Buccaneers, as he snatched a batted Matt Hasselbeck pass out of mid-air and rumbled for seven yards to the Tampa Bay 45.

“It was great,” Hasselbeck said. “When a ball gets tipped, it’s anybody’s ball. Usually you get unlucky and a defender catches it. When it got tipped, my stomach kind of sank, and when Eugene caught it, I was cheering him on. I was his biggest fan.”

Tackle Mike Otto might have been even more excited about the grab.

“It was unbelievable,” Otto said. “I look up and I see Eugene catch it in stride and go downfield … That’s unbelievable. Eugene even looked semi-athletic and that’s impressive.”
