It takes a village to return this kick. Bill Castor's 27-yard field goal attempt was blocked behind the line of scrimmage by Kevin Cellary and Kory Crichton picked it up and ran it back to the McDaniel 40. As he was about to be tackled, he lateraled it backwards, where Michael Long scooped it up and took it the rest of the way for the touchdown. It's the D3football.com Play of the Week.
