Easton Stick firmly entrenched in North Dakota State, FCS lore after scoring 5 TDs in 38-24 national title win

FRISCO, Texas – Easton Stick’s final victory lap as a North Dakota State football player wasn’t a short parade around the painted edges of the grass surface at Toyota Stadium.

There were more celebrations for one of the most celebrated players in school history afterward, but 76 seconds still remained on the clock when NDSU’s quarterback took his first victory stroll.

Actually, it was more of a dead sprint-turned-light jog as Stick motioned a handoff to his running back, pulled the ball back into his own arms and exploded through a crease in Eastern Washington’s defense, turning on the jets before slowly letting off as he crossed the goal line for a 46-yard scoring run.
