Virginia’s Kevin Parks shows great concentration on two great catches vs Duke [Video]

Virginia's Kevin Parks had not one, but two fantastic catches in Saturday's home game against Duke. You may not find two finer examples of a receiver keeping his focus on the football to make a catch, or in this case two catches.

There was this one off a deflection that was hauled in by Parks before hitting the ground…

… and then there was this catch while on the move that saw Parks trap the ball against his leg before flipping over defenders for a touchdown… 

Though Parks came through with two ridiculous catches, Virginia still lost to Duke, 35-22. And don't look now, but Duke is one win away form clinching bowl eligibility for a second straight season.

Virginia, on the other hand, has dropped to 2-5 and is looking down the barrel of another season without a postseason game. The remaining schedule could be brutal with games against Georgia Tech, Clemson, Miami and rival Virginia Tech still to play (there's also a game against North Carolina in that mix).
