Top 100 Moments of 2010
#62: Martin the Ball Carrier
At the start of the 4th quarter, Columbia had a semi-comfortable 35-20 lead when Lafayette faced a 3rd and 4 from its own 32.
That's when the fun started.
Leopard QB Ryan O'Neill completed a short pass to receiver Mike Bennett only to have Alex Gross knock the ball right out of hands and into the waiting arms of Josh Martin.
Martin then proceeded to put on a show of masterful, and yet still comical, running all the way back to the Lafayette 10 before a holding penalty pushed the Lions back to the Leopard 41.
It was yet another example of how strong an early season Martin enjoyed in 2010.
Columbia needs #95 to play like that all year in 2011.
