San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings has officially scored on the biggest stage of them all—the Super Bowl. The former Tennessee Volunteers threw a touchdown pass to put the 49ers up 10-0 in the second quarter of the Super Bowl, though they went on to lose the game.

Jennings was a former high school quarterback and was recruited as a quarterback before ultimately changing his position at Tennessee. Jennings is famously known for his Hail Mary snag against the Georgia Bulldogs on the road but has officially added another big moment to his resume.

Jennings became the first wide receiver since Super Bowl 40 to throw a touchdown pass. The former in-state high school target turned plenty of heads as a pure quarterback and, at one point, was considered a great option as a signal caller before getting to Tennessee. Although the Volunteers used him as a wide receiver, which worked out in the end, they never shied away from using him in wildcat formations.

He caught a pass behind the line from quarterback Brock Purdy and looked across the field as he hit running back superstar Christian McCaffery who took the ball into the end zone. Jennings temporarily silenced the Chiefs fans and sparked a new level of life in the reigning NFC champions. Jennings has been the third wide receiver target behind Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk for most of the season. He has played a huge role for the 49ers since joining them.
