WATCH: Viral Priest Uses God-Given Route Running To Bless A Defender

He puts the PRO in prodigal.

They call him "Micah Parson."

He Hails Mary.

The separation of church and sport was on timeout this week after a video of a priest's route-running went viral.

"Priest Holmes" blessed his parishioners with Super Bowl-level play ahead of Sunday's big game — head-to-toe in a heat-tech cassock with a Nike tag.

The priest Mossed the student but got flagged for taunting after shouting "Get thee behind me, defender."


While Sunday's Super Bowl 56, live from SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, should showcase plenty of receiving talent between the Bengals and Rams' respective offenses, neither will part a defense like the MVPriest.
