In their first ever college football game, the Arizona Christian Firestorm have already found their way into the record books.

With Arizona Christian trailing Evangel University 30-9 in the third quarter, a high bounce on a punt deflected off returner Gabriel Jordan's hand and into the end zone, which threatened to make the score even more lopsided.

Instead, Jordan kept his composure. He broke one tackle as he picked up the ball and then let his blockers do their jobs.

It's important to note that this punt return officially goes down as a 100-yard touchdown, even though Jordan picked the ball up near the back of the end zone.

The Firestorm dropped their first game in program history, 40-16.
