'I can't say I've seen anything quite like that before!'

More news about: Brockport

"I can't say I've seen anything quite like that before!" That was how a St. John Fisher broadcaster described it and it's hard to deny. If you've only seen the one angle that made the rounds of this play on Saturday night, you've got to see the rest. Three separate looks at Justin Morrison's amazing run and hurdling leap for Brockport in the Golden Eagles' 38-7 win in the Courage Bowl 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.

Week 3 Play of the Week finalists

Here are some great plays which deserved extra mention:


Alright, we've seen this and we've debated it and it is indeed against the rules of college football. But it's still an amazing individual play by Tyler Hopkins, the TLU kicker.
 

Just an awesome, gutsy play call by Buena Vista on the goal line for a two-point conversion, running the reverse to T.J. Lint who fights his way and lunges over the end zone to beat Central 39-38.
 

More elevation here, as King's quarterback Zach Whitehead scrambles and leaps into the end zone for a two-point conversion, tying the game with Lebanon Valley in the fourth quarter. King's went on to win the game.
 

No leaping, no lunging, but just a solid effort fighting off would-be tacklers for Olivet freshman John Adams III, who found his way 99 yards to the end zone to stop a scoring run by Aurora and help his team to a 37-21 win.
