Sean McVay's mind is nothing short of a steel trap—at least when it comes to anything that has to do with football.
The Los Angeles Rams head coach is rumored to have a photographic memory, and a Bleacher Report segment from September showed he could recall plays from as far back as 2015.
But how about plays from 2003, when McVay was a hotshot quarterback for Marist High School in Brookhaven, Georgia? Astonishingly, yes—McVay is able to recall plays from 16 years ago like they happened yesterday.
At Super Bowl LIII, Henry McKenna of Patriots Wire quizzed McVay on several plays from his high school days. McVay was unfazed:

In the second half of the clip, McVay recalls a passing touchdown from the 2003 State Semifinals Game. The play is called 876 Trail Flood. After some digging on YouTube, we were able to find footage of it:
McVay got absolutely obliterated on the play, but he was able to shake it off and lead his team to victory. Then, in the State Championship, he persevered through a broken foot to help Marist win it all. As much as we glorify Bill Belichick, Sean McVay is a football legend in his own right.
