NEW YORK (WABC) -- LIU Quarterback Chris Howell's unorthodox throwing motion is so unique that he has gone viral.
"I woke up to over 100 sending me the video," Howell said.
What Howell describes as a low sidearm delivery is the way he has always thrown the football, trying to keep up with his older brother, who is now his teammate.
Growing up it meant playing with a regulation-size pigskin, which was a little big for him at the time.
"My brother is older than me, so the ball - that's the only way I knew how to throw it," Howell said.
The lefty's throw is so different that others had tried to change it, but that didn't stick.
"In high school, yes, they tried to fix it," he says.
"The lefty didn't scare us off. The throwing motion did at the beginning. This kid could play - we knew he could play," said coach Ron Cooper, "He's very smart, he's doing well - he has that it factor."
