Who can forget the play where San Francisco 49ers OLB Ahmad Brooks tried to time the snap while jumping over the line of scrimmage at the goal-line against the Carolina Panthers? Remember that play?

Have you ever wondered where he got the balls to make such a bold decision? Well we have it for you as Brooks had tried the “LaVar” leap back in college at Auburn and was extremely successful. Relive both plays as Brooks should be on par for another All-Pro season in 2014.
