The milestones keep coming for former South Carolina football star Deebo Samuel.
A week after recording his first professional catch for the San Francisco 49ers, Samuel caught his first pro touchdown this Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, a two-yard pass from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo where Samuel was wide open in the end zone.
Samuel, the 36th pick in the NFL draft this past April, had a strong afternoon as the 49ers defeated the Bengals 41-17. He finished with five receptions for 87 yards to lead all receivers, including a catch of 37 yards.
Samuel isn’t the only Gamecock great to find the end zone Sunday — former Carolina star Hayden Hurst, now a tight end for the Baltimore Ravens, caught a one-yard touchdown pass from Lamar Jackson for his second career score. Cornerback Stephon Gilmore scored for the New England Patriots on an interception return.
