At least that's what the Canadian Football League (CFL) tries to show with the help of Whistle Sports.

In a video posted on YouTube Wednesday, Hamilton Tiger-Cats star Andy Fantuz breaks the world record in one-handed catches. The wide receiver catches 50 passes in just one minute.

Iowa wide receiver Tevaun Smith is said to be the previous record holder with 41 catches.

The video is the first in a series to spark more interest in the CFL.

In an upcoming video, Calgary Stampeders' quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell is seen making two plays with his eyes blindfolded.

The CFL says the partnership with Whistle Sports aims to show off what the league's athletes are capable of.

“This is a bold and transformative move in our efforts to expand the reach of the CFL to new audiences across all major platforms,” CFL commissioner Jeffrey Orridge says in a statement, according to the Toronto Star.
