Video: Three monster hits during D-III punt return

Linfield (D-III - OR) is nationally known for flat out getting after it on defense and special teams, and in their second round playoff game this weekend they had a punt return for the ages.

Unlike a popular field goal return from the weekend though, the part that's going to make you rewind this one over is and over is the players without the ball. Special teams guys, this is why you hammer home the importance of keeping your head on a swivel to your punt unit.

Against Hampden-Sydney on Saturday, Linfield recovered from a 21-3 deficit to come back and win 31-21. The victory sets up a quarterfinal showdown against UW-Whitewater this weekend..
