Cutting Room Floor: 2002 Linfield vs Wartburg, NCAA Playoffs
We're taking another step back in time for this week's cutting room floor clip and for a good reason. Last week a package arrived at the Wildcat11 household and upon opening the box it was Christmas in April. Mike Rhodes, who shot incredible footage of Linfield football from 2001-2004, sent Wildcat11 raw tapes Mike shot from 2001-2003 for WC11 to copy. This was like having Fort Knox pealing off a pallet of gold bricks and dropping them off at my door.
So as a tip of the cap to Mike and to give you a small preview of what Catdomealumni.com will be able to mine out of these tapes, we're bringing you a stripped down highlight from Linfield's very first NCAA Division III playoff victory over the Wartburg Knights in 2002. In a beautiful late November day, the 'Cats jumped all over the IIAC's champion on the way to a 52-15 playoff victory.
