ODAC Football Play of the Week: Week 11 - Guilford
Trailing Emory & Henry by 10 in a back-and-forth final quarter, Guilford faced a 3rd-and-1 on its own 41-yard line when De'Eric Bell took the inside handoff, burst into the second level and then turned on the afterburners for a 59-yard touchdown run. The PAT brought Guilford to within 38-35 in a game they would eventually win, 42-38. The run marked Bell's longest of the season and accounted for nearly half of his 132 rushing yards in the game. The touchdown was one of three Bell scored on the afternoon, which helped him break the 42-year-old record for rushing TDs in a season (13).
ODAC Football Play of the Week: Week 11 - Hampden-Sydney
Early in the second quarter with “the Game” tied 7-7, Cam Johnson went to work for the first of his two touchdown receptions. Quarterback Alec Cobb put a flighted ball in Johnson’s area. The senior wideout went up above the coverage and pulled in one of his school-record 19 catches for a 20-yard touchdown and a 14-7 lead with 11:54 left in the first half. Johnson would finish with 230 receiving yards, capping his career with the third-most receiving yards in a game in ODAC history. His 110 receptions this season are tied for the second-most in the conference all-time.
ODAC Football Play of the Week: Week 11 - Randolph-Macon
With Randolph-Macon leading Hampden-Sydney, 28-21, early in the third quarter of “the Game,” the Tigers’ threatened to tie the contest with a drive deep in R-MC territory. That’s when Ryan Burns came up with a game-changing takeaway. Burns came off his own receiver and read the quarterback eyes before stepping in front of a possible touchdown pass at the goal line. He returned the interception 39 yards to setup a Yellow Jackets’ touchdown drive, effectively resulting in a possible 13-point swing. R-MC would go on to win the contest, 56-28. Burns finished with 15 tackles and four other passes defended, giving him an ODAC-high 16 passes breakups.
ODAC Football Play of the Week: Week 11 - Washington and Lee
Big plays dotted Washington and Lee’s performance in clinching the ODAC title on Saturday with a 48-21 at Shenandoah. Backed up at their own 5-yard line, the Generals’ put the ball in Josh Breece’s hands to get a little breathing room. He provided that and then some as he burst thru the line, made a move, and put the finishing touches on a 21-carry 280-yard day with a school-record 95-yard sprint to the end zone. It was the second of three touchdown runs for Breece. He leads the league with 1,656 yards and 18 rushing touchdowns as Washington and Lee enters the NCAA Tournament.
