Top 100 Moments of 2010
#92: The Drive
After Fordham took a 16-9 lead with 4:54 left in the 4th quarter, the Lions began their drive all the way back on their own 18.
With the pressure mounting, Columbia showed its resilience even after the first play was a two yard loss on a run by Leon Ivery and the second play was called back for holding.
On 2nd and 20 at his own eight, QB Sean Brackett took over. First he ran it himself for 11 yards to set up a 3rd and nine.
Then he hit Nico Gutierrez for a clutch 39-yard pass.
Two plays later he ran for nine yards.
Two plays after that he made a clutch nine-yard pass to Brian DeVeau to convert on 4th and one.
The next two plays were nice completions both to Mark Muston to put Columbia at 1st and goal at the Ram 4.
I know I haven’t exactly spoiled the next big moment of the season by saying that the drive didn’t end the way the Lions wanted it to.
But it can’t be ignored that the team had the guts and ability to drive all the way inside their opponent’s five even without their #1 receiver on the field.
It was yet another example of the remarkable fight in this 2010 Columbia team.
