Into the record books

Heidelberg running back Cartel Brooks pushed the NCAA all-divisions single-game rushing record a little further out of reach, thanks in part to this 81-yard touchdown run that helped him reach 465 yards in a 42-14 rout of Baldwin Wallace on Nov. 16, 2013. 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.
