Poll: Which play was more memorable in Maryland-Navy?
Everyone remembers The Leap. Adrian Moten leapt over the line of scrimmage and knocked the ball loose from Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs’s hands. Maryland recovered the fumble and denied the Midshipmen a red-zone touchdown (a recurring theme during Monday's 17-14 Terrapins win).
“Moten did that on his own,” Coach Ralph Friedgen said. “He was to blitz. I can see him being a coach someday. Very, very instinctive.”
Everyone remembers The Collision. Fourth and goal from the 1. Thirty-seven seconds remaining. Dobbs keeps the ball and tries to bust his way into the end zone. Boom! In comes safety Kenny Tate and Dobbs fell about 12 inches shy of the goal line.
“That’s the guy we envisioned we would have,” defensive coordinator Don Brown said of Tate.
[Editor's note: If anyone has an embeddable video of Tate's stuff of Dobbs, leave the URL in the comments. Thanks.]
