Putting your foot down
We got two plays with great significance, because everything is magnified when it's Week 11. On our chosen play, it's not until the third angle (thanks, NESN!) that you get a definitive look that this is a catch, but indeed, Williams receiver Tomas Kearney gets the foot down inbounds on a catch from Pat Moffitt. On the next play, Moffitt throws a 33-yard touchdown pass to give Williams a 24-10 fourth-quarter lead on archrival Amherst. It's the D3football.com Play of the Week:
