What a video should look like when you lead the NCAA in sacks

Over the past three seasons, Linfield College (D-III - OR) has led all of Division III in sacks each season. Combine their totals from the past three years and they lead all of the NCAA in sacks with 159 total (2010 - 49, 2011 - 47, 2012 - 63).

Think about that for a second...as good as the defensive fronts at Alabama and LSU were last year, they each had just 35 sacks on the year. Two of the most feared defensive ends in the country last year made up South Carolina's front and they helped the defense get to the quarterback 43 times, still two shy of Linfield's lowest mark over the past three seasons.

The closest that any FBS team has come to Linfield's 63 sack mark was Stanford last season with 57.

Before the start of the 2010 season, when they racked up nearly 50 sacks, the players starting calling the defense "the Shark Tank" and the name and feeding frenzy mantra that goes along with it has been adopted by the unit.

These guys are among the best in small college football when it comes to putting together videos, so sit back and enjoy it.
