Fun fact: Michael Floyd caught a touchdown pass from Andrew Luck before stepping onto a college or professional football field.

Floyd hauled in a pair of touchdown grabs at the 2008 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, including a 39-yard strike from the future franchise quarterback of the Colts.

Floyd was named a high school All-American after leading Cretin-Derham Hall to an appearance in Minnesota's Class 5A state championship game in 2007, and completely shredding his competition along the way to be named Mr. Football.

According to Floyd's Notre Dame bio, he had 59 catches for 1,247 yards, 17 touchdowns and added 497 rushing yards and four touchdowns on punt returns as a senior in high school.
