Nelson Rosario blames it on the juice

By Blair Angulo

Two things happened after junior receiver Nelson Rosario made an acrobatic grab in the back of the end zone midway through Thursday's practice.

First, Rosario's momentum carried him into a stack of Gatorade coolers. A collective gasp from coaches, players and fans soon followed.

Rosario landed on his back and, for a second, lay motionless near the bleachers.

Then, in the most anti-dramatic way possible, he held the ball up with two hands to signal that he had held on.

Disaster averted.
