You'll flip over it

Wittenberg junior wide receiver Desi Kirkman flips over a Chicago defender for a 19-yard touchdown reception from junior quarterback Reed Florence. And the description doesn't do it justice. It's the Play of the Week.

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

Week 7 Play of the Week finalists

  • Pacific's Craig Bailey returns Devin Lagorio's blocked PAT attempt and there was nobody even in the same frame as he brought it back for a defensive two-point conversion. Watch
  • Steve Koudossou brings in a 39-yard touchdown catch from Justin Sottilare with a Virginia-Lynchburg defender draped all over him and a second defender closing. Watch
  • Linfield's Diedre Wiersma takes a swing pass, puts two moves on a Whitworth defender, then tightrope-walks down the sidelines and dives into the end zone. Watch
  • Oberlin's Shawn Chrapczynski blocks a Denison field goal attempt and Matt Richard returns it 85 yards for a touchdown, giving Oberlin a 20-0 lead going into halftime. Watch
