ASU Football Year In Review Series: Play Of The Year

There were a lot of cool plays that took place in 2011 by the Arizona State Sun Devils -- Jamal Miles' touchdown pass to Aaron Pflugrad against Missouri was just one of many that entertained and delighted ASU fans across the country.

One play, however, stood out above all the rest. Cameron Marshall's 37 yard touchdown run against the Oregon St. Beavers embodied many of the characteristics you look for in a big play, from hard-nosed running to flashes of brilliant speed.

Taking the handoff from Brock Osweiler, Marshall was met at the line of scrimmage by an OSU defender, but he spun off the tackle and continued downfield. He would go on to break six tackles in total, an absolutely amazing effort from the junior running back. Words don't do this run justice -- you just have to relive it.

Jump out to the 2:50 mark in this video to see the play on JediASU's YouTube channel.

While the year didn't turn out the way any of us had hoped, this impressive effort will not go forgotten. Congratulations to Cameron Marshall for winning the House Of Sparky Play Of The Year Award. The trophy's in the mail, Cameron.
