What is the greatest play in the history of National Football League’s Cincinnati Bengals? According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, it was the 93-yard kickoff return by Furman alum and trustee Stanford Jennings ’84 in Super Bowl XXIII. The newspaper talked with Jennings about his famous 93-yard sprint against the San Francisco 49ers in what was truly a Furman story. Jennings’ daughter, Kelsey ’11, was born the day before the Super Bowl and the Bengals head coach at the time was Sam Wyche ’66.

Stanford Jennings (36) covered the 93 yards against the 49ers in about 10 seconds.
