Apparently Alabama defensive tackle Da’Ron Payne can do it all!
During the third quarter of today’s All-State Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, Payne was able to intercept a pass from Clemson QB Kelly Bryant and return it deep into Tigers territory:

Immediately following the play, the Alabama defensive lineman was able to snag a toe-tapping touchdown catch that some full-time receivers couldn’t do:

The interception and eventual touchdown was huge for Alabama as it shifted momentum and allowed the Crimson Tide to increase their lead.
The winner of the Sugar Bowl advances to the National Championship Game to take on the Georgia Bulldogs in Atlanta, GA.
