We’re going to go through them anytime they put a list together — and once again — the fine folks at Stanford have put out another top 10 list.

This time around it’s the top 10 catches of the David Shaw era.

Everyone remembers their favorite catch — whether it happened in your days of playing the sport or whether it was one you watched. I even coined an expression on social media titled #BigTimeCatch because I’m a huge fan of the incredible work a receiver has to do to bring in a memorable catch.

So while we’ll count them down here just as Stanford has already done for us — I want you to drop your favorite catches below in the comments. Let’s discuss those memorable moments. They could even be featured here already — or they could be prior to David Shaw — all the same!
