David Mikel Tyree is a former American footballer who played as a wide receiver in the NFL for seven seasons. He is known for miraculous helmet catch in the final drive of Super Bowl XLII of the New York Giants. He made a memorable moment in the history of Super Bowl as, in the waning moments of the game, when the Giants required to convert a first down to have a shot at beating the opponents, Eli Manning dropped back and broke a few tackles, and then tossed the ball to Tyree who caught it, and kept the drive alive, as his team won 17-14. Despite his shining moment, Tyree never managed to shine through again. He is primarily remembered for the Helmet Catch. He retired in 2010 with 650 receiving yards and four touchdowns.
