Austin Appleby stiff arms defender, throws for TD

Sunday afternoon’s clash with the Marshall Thundering Herd did not get off to a great start for Purdue Boilermakers quarterback Austin Appleby, but he was able to redeem himself later in the first half.

During a play close to the goaline, Appleby used an incredible stiff arm to break free from a defender before dumping off the ball to Danny Anthrop for the score.

Check out the play below:

It is hard not to be impressed by that.

Of course, the Boilermakers are still trailing, but Appleby proved he is capable of leading his offense into the endzone.
