Officially, 74 yards, but really much longer

All sorts of Heidelberg players got their hands on Muskingum's Dominick Williams but none of them quite stopped him as he took this punt back 74 yards for a touchdown in a 49-21 loss. It's 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.
