Arkansas Tech’s defense had only 10 players on the field on its first play against Southern Nazarene in honor of Zemaric Holt, a 21-year-old defensive lineman who drowned in July. Despite the intentional disadvantage, the Wonder Boys—great name, by the way—scored a touchdown.

Southern Nazarene ran a trick play that went horribly wrong, and Arkansas Tech’s Nick Akins recovered the fumble in the end zone, eight seconds into the game.


The Wonder Boys won in a rout, 62-14.
