Known for highlight catches, former Seton Hill standout Derek Orndorff is showing HR power at Liberty

Derek Orndorff has become known for his highlight catches in center field.

The grad student baseball player at Liberty has made ESPN SportsCenter’s Top Plays three times in less than a year. He even grabbed the show’s No. 1 highlight on Feb. 19 with a diving snag on the warning track against Florida.

Whether he is using leather or aluminum, he thrives in the power alleys and swings for the fences. He might soon be making late-night highlights for his towering home runs.

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr on Sunday.

The Las Vegas Raiders have struggled to get reliable production out of their wide receivers in recent years and have undergone numerous shake-ups at the position since Jon Gruden took over as head coach in 2018. Each and every season, the coaching staff expresses confidence in the group, but ultimately the team’s pass-catching unit has been somewhat of a letdown as of late.
