It turns out Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley is an accurate passer. Deadly accurate.
Hundley was hanging out with IndyCar this weekend at the Road America in Wisconsin when he decided to toss a few 40-yard bombs. His intention was to hit the open window of a moving Corvette pace car. He followed through on these intentions:
“You can’t beat that,” Hundley said about his throw. IndyCar driver Will Power couldn't quite match Hundley's feat.
Surely Hundley couldn't leave the track without a few high-speed laps around the track, via 77-year-old racing legend Mario Andretti.
Andretti gave Hundley a lightning fast tour of the course, where the KOHLER Grand Prix is Sunday.
Hundley said the two-seater test drive “was nothing I had ever expected in a million years.”
“There was a good amount of screaming,” he said, “It didn’t affect Mario at all, so I’m glad it didn’t.”
For the record, Hundley's career completion percentage at UCLA averaged out at 67.4 percent, an impressive number by most standards. He ended three seasons with 9,966 passing yards, 1,747 rushing yards, 106 total TDs (including one receiving) and 25 picks.
The 24-year-old from Phoenix, Arizona is entering his third season in the NFL.
