Here's a play that has it all

More news about: Pacific

We've been begging for a play with a decleater block. And we've gotten a couple in recent weeks, but this one tops the charts. 

In Pacific's first homecoming since 1991, quarterback Trevor Okamoto is flushed out of the pocket on a blitz on fourth-and-12 from the Whitworth 13 yard line. After a huge block by tight end Will Marchbanks, Okamoto throws under more pressure to wide receiver Jordan Fukumoto.

Matt Richert is on the play-by-play. Scott Hermo is the color analyst.

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