The Best Play of the Scarlet-White Game

New, comment

A heartwarming moment ended the spring game on Saturday, watch it here.

NCAA Football: Indiana at Rutgers Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

While we heard from head coach Chris Ash and had several of our own questions answered during Saturday’s Scarlet-White scrimmage, which concluded spring practice for Rutgers football, none included the best play of the entire day. For the last play of the game, 11 year-old Tommy Marcketta completed a pass to 19 year old Lamount Banks, which resulted in a 96 yard touchdown. It was the longest touchdown pass in Rutgers football history.

It’s becoming somewhat of a new spring tradition, as last year’s game ended with 4 year old Mordecai Carthy running for a 93 yard touchdown, the longest in program history.

This year’s play was a special moment for both, who are Rutgers fans, as Marcketta has autism and Banks is fighting Leukemia. Credit Ash, the program and the athletic department for providing such a special moment for them both.

Watch the play right here.
