Putting his foot down

More news about: Johns Hopkins

Just two minutes after Muhlenberg had cut Johns Hopkins' lead to one late in the second quarter, the Blue Jays were in a position to put some points on the board before halftime. Robbie Matey saw receiver Bob D'Orazio streaking down the left sideline and put the ball where only he could get it. 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.
