FOREST, Va. --- There's something "special" about this week's ODAC Football Play of the Week Fan Poll winner. For the second time this season, Bridgewater College landed the majority of the vote thanks to its version of the "Philly Special" in ints contest versus Washington and Lee on Saturday.
The Eagles may have dropped its ODAC contest with Washington and Lee, 30-20, but that didn’t keep Bridgewater from having some fun on a two-point conversion attempt. The Eagles ran their own version of the “Philly Special” following a third quarter score. Running back Demetreus Jalepes took a direct snap with quarterback Jay Scroggins (pictured) walking over to the right side of the line. Jalepes pitched it to wide receiver Brendon Maturey – who happens to be a former BC quarterback -- and Maturey hit Scroggins in the right side of the end zone to complete the two-point try.
This week's four nominees were voted on by more than 100 ODAC football fans and garnered more than 3,400 impressions, views, and interactions on the ODAC website, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Bridgewater's trick play earned 48.7-percent of the vote.
