Thursday Play Of The Day

This was the Play of the Day for our Thursday evening on July 19, 2007:

Maurice got Play of the Day last Thursday for putting himself in a position to make a great play. On forth and long, his quarterback heaved the ball long and high and the defender looked to have an easy pick but he mis-timed his leap and instead of coming down with the ball, tipped it instead.

Seeing he had no play on the ball, Maurice positioned himself close enough to catch the defender had he intercepted the ball but far enough away to make a play for the tip, which he did, easily, and turned to dash to the end zone for a score with the defender never having a chance to catch him.
