Why Ted Ginn’s Touchdown Catch Was More Special Than Normal
Ted Ginn, Jr. caught a 33-yard touchdown pass from Teddy Bridgewater to put the Saints up 24-10 over the Bucs.
There are three Glenville, Ohio natives on the Saints squad. Ted Ginn, Jr., and defensive backs Marshon Lattimore and Justin Hardee. There were 13 other Glenville natives in the stands at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Sunday.
You see, Ted Ginn has a youth football team out of Glenville called Ginn Elite.
The team was bummed out because they had their second game in a row that was cancelled due to forfeit. Ginn decided to try and raise the kids' moral a bit, and flew them in for the game.
What a game to bring them in for, as Ginn had a touchdown catch, followed by the throw over the bar of the goal post. It was his first receiving touchdown since week 3 of last season.
“God works in strange ways," Ginn said.
