Terrence Berrigan played basketball at Gallaudet
during the seventies. Despite having never played
football in his life he came out for the Gallaudet
team in his senior season.

The last game of the 1977 season was against
Newport News Apprentice. Gallaudet was trailing
21-13 with 45 seconds remaining. Quarterback
Mike Paulone hit Berrigan with a 20 yard
pass that became a 80-yard touchdown run
bringing the score to 21-19 after a failed
two point PAT.

It was Berrigan’s only touchdown that took
place in the last game of the season, the
last game of his career and the last play
of the game!
