We open with a big run

Bethel quarterback Josh Aakre rolls out and keeps on running 75 yards to the end zone, thanks to blocks from Bubba Friedlund (62) and Brandon Marquardt (22). The Royals beat Simpson 55-3.

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

Week 1 Play of the Week finalists

  • North Carolina Wesleyan's Dwayne Hollis smells this perfectly and levels a hit on Ohio Northern's Justin Wilson. But keep an eye on the ball, if you could, because the play isn't over when you (or the camera operator) thinks it is. Watch
  • St. Vincent defensive back Dan Wirkowski picks off a Bridgewater pass one-handed in the first quarter in St. Vincent territory to preserve an early tie score. Watch
  • Redlands linebacker Jordan Garcia makes a big hit to force a North Central field goal. Watch

You can see all of the nominated plays on our Week 1 highlights playlist and even more top plays on the D3sports.com YouTube channel.
