WATCH: Yurcich uses LEGO Star Wars figures in play

This is … well, fabulous. It is a video from nine years ago, when Mike Yurcich was the offensive coordinator at Shippensburg. He appears on a local TV show and diagrams a play using LEGO Star Wars figures.

“We have five O-linemen, obviously with R2D2 being the center there and Obi-Wan Kenobi over there and Darth Vader being the tight end,” Yurcich says.

Yes, this really happened. And it is GOLD. Many thanks to Oklahoma State sideline reporter Robert Allen for pointing out the existence of this glorious video.

Check it out.
