From nailing a half-court buzzer beater to showing ridiculous hops on an alley-oop dunk, there is nothing Duke Blue Devils freshman forward Zion Williamson can’t do on a basketball court. Now it turns out his insane skills translate to the football field as well.
Williamson showed off jaw-dropping arm strength with the football in a recently released video. The 18-year-old athletic marvel rolled out then unleashed a cannon deep down the field for an insane deep throw.
Is that Zion Williamson or Patrick Mahomes?

At this point, we’re running out of words to describe Williamson. He is a freak of an athlete on the court and it seems pretty clear he even has NFL-caliber arm strength and the ability to throw with ease.
Williamson is going to be a high pick if he declares for the 2019 NBA Draft. Perhaps we may just have to see him on the football field more so he can become the next two-sport star.
While LeBron James was a great pass catcher in high school football, Williamson clearly wants to show he has the arm strength to be a quarterback.
