A century in the making

Some Gallaudet fans were so desperate for a win against Catholic, they counted a 1918 game, during World War I in which Catholic didn't even sponsor any sports, let alone football. Thanks to Tony Tatum's offense and defense, the Buff and Blue have a win that counts. His touchdown catch is the D3football.com Play of the Week.

We solicit video of top plays from every Division III football program and this was our top clip.

If Tony Tatum's name is familiar, there's  a reason: He was the one who started the tip drill interception that Gallaudet made famous in 2010.

Week 2 Play of the Week finalists

  • Albright's Daniel Sobolewski kicked a 47-yard field goal in the rain at the end of regulation to avert an upset bid by Stevenson. Watch
  • Tony Tatum being Tony Tatum -- tipping an interception to himself in Gallaudet's win at Catholic. Watch
