FOREST, Va. --- The final ODAC Football Play of the Week Fan Poll of the season brought about a first-time winner. Washington and Lee University claims its first win the season on the heels for a Josh Breece's school-record touchdown run against Shenandoah on Saturday.
Big plays dotted Washington and Lee’s performance in clinching the ODAC title on Saturday with a 48-21 at Shenandoah. Backed up at their own 5-yard line, the Generals’ put the ball in Josh Breece’s hands to get a little breathing room. He provided that and then some as he burst thru the line, made a move, and put the finishing touches on a 21-carry 280-yard day with a school-record 95-yard sprint to the end zone. It was the second of three touchdown runs for Breece. He leads the league with 1,656 yards and 18 rushing touchdowns as Washington and Lee enters the NCAA Tournament.
This week's four nominees garnered more 3,000 interactions on the ODAC website, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Breece's sprint garnered 44.1-percent of the fan vote to top this week's poll.
