ESPN highlights Pacific football on Top Plays

A heads-up defensive play by safety Bryan Mills has earned the Pacific football program some national notoriety.

A heads-up defensive play by safety Bryan Mills has earned the Pacific football program some national notoriety.

Mills' successful 100-yard defensive two-point conversion not only gave the Boxers their first score in Saturday's Northwest Conference football game against Lewis and Clark, it also landed Pacific in the No. 1 spot on the 'Top Plays' segment of ESPN's SportsCenter.

The play occurred with 12:11 left in the first quarter after Pacific defensive lineman Devin Lagorio blocked an extra point attempt. The ball bounced into the hands of a Lewis and Clark player who, thinking the play was over, tossed the ball toward the referees in the end zone.

Mills, noticing that no whistle had blown, picked up the ball at the goal line and sprinted down the Pacific sideline. By the time any Lewis and Clark player had a chance to catch up with Mills, he was at the Pioneers' 30-yard line, and he broke three tackles before making his way to the opposite end zone.
