Hanover College defies physics with ricochet touchdown pass

Wednesday November 5th, 2014

Division III Hanover College in Indiana was the site of one of the most improbable touchdown passes in the history of football over the weekend.

The Panthers quarterback threw the ball deep downfield into double coverage, where it ricocheted off the foot of a defender from Earlham College into the waiting arms of Hanover's Ricky Windell.

Windell then sprinted the remaining 35 yards for the first touchdown of the game, which Hanover held on to win 49-34.

Maybe "close your eyes and throw" is a better offense than one would expect.
