There were several great plays and awesome moments from Rutgers’ spring game on Saturday afternoon, but there’s no question that Chris Ash saved the best for last.
To close out the Scarlet Knights’ annual spring scrimmage, Rutgers brought out 11-year-old Tommy Marcketta and 19-year-0ld Lamount Banks for the final play of the game. Marcketta has autism and Banks is battling Leukemia, but the two connected for the longest touchdown pass in Scarlet Knights history.
Marcketta threw the ball to Banks who raced to the end zone for a 96-yard touchdown as time expired in the game. They now hold the record for longest pass in Rutgers football history.
What an incredible moment in Piscataway and a tremendous way to end the spring game:
The highlight of the Scarlet-White Game: the longest touchdown pass in Rutgers football history!
