Get that fake stuff out of here!

More news about: WPI

Down by 10 early in the fourth quarter, Catholic lines up for a field goal. But when the holder tosses the ball to the kicker, and the kicker rolls to his left, one defender, for sure, was not fooled. And WPI's Lou Garcia makes an amazing leap on the play. 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.

Week 6 Play of the Week finalists

Here are some great plays which deserved extra mention:


The defense for top-ranked Mary Hardin-Baylor made a statement right away in its game at No. 5 Hardin-Simmons, as the Cru's Kris Brown intercepted Ty Hooper's pass on the opening drive and returned it 64 yards for a touchdown. UMHB led 7-0 and went on to win, 17-7.
 

Evan Wyse finds wide receiver Jeffery Barnett at the goal line for a 40-yard touchdown, which results form Barnett reaching over the defender to pull the ball in. Trine beat Albion 56-21 to remain unbeaten.
 

Brandon Boyd, a senior running back, ran 72 yards for the game-winning touchdown to lead Pacific football to a 24-20 win over Pacific Lutheran.
 

Trenton Monson makes an amazing catch along the sidelines for UW-River Falls vs. UW-Platteville.
