“I pointed out to him one time what to do, and [on his second try] he threw it up and she caught it,” Joey Frisco III told The Washington Post.

“Usually it takes time for elephants to get used to how someone’s gonna throw, but an NFL superstar quarterback, he knew exactly what to do,” he told the newspaper.

“I told RG III, it’s not like throwing to Pierre Garcon or Santana Moss, but I don’t think anyone could tackle her if you want to hire her,” Frisco told the newspaper. “Kelly Ann’s the lucky one, to me. I’ve been playing football since I was 11 or 12 years old and I’ve never got a chance to catch a football from an NFL star, and within a year she gets to catch a football from one of the greatest quarterbacks in the world.” – espn
