When the Dartmouth Big Green traveled to New Haven to face off against its Ivy league opponents Yale, the team forgot a vital piece of equipment for the game.
They forgot the kicking tees.
Good thing these kids go to an Ivy League school and could use their heads and improvise. Dartmouth kicker R.C. Willenbrock decided to cut down a water bottle and use that as a tee.
"I saw a water bottle, and I was like, 'this will work perfectly,'" Willenbrock said. The team had to revert to the bottle tee after Yale decided to take back the tee it had originally allowed them to use.
Starting kicker Riley Lyons averaged 60 yards on kickoffs and recorded two touchbacks, so, just in case they forget another time, they have a capable backup plan.
