Running back Rachaad White had his share of highlight plays during his two-year run at Arizona State, but he made national waves with a dominant stiff-arm on Sunday.

In the rookie’s breakout performance for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, White used his right arm to toss Seattle Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs out of his way to pick up an extra 5-6 yards on a big run.

Social media reacted immediately, as some called it the stiff-arm of the season.

White started his first NFL game Sunday in the league’s first contest played in Germany.

The rookie put on a show for the fans in Munich with 105 rushing yards on 22 carries for an average of 4.8. He picked up an 18-yard gain out of the two-minute warning to ice a Buccaneers win, 21-16.

White set career-highs in carries and rushing yards, playing ahead of veteran Leonard Fournette.
