Longest Plays

These lists are based on the official records from 2018. I am working my way backwards through the media guides and have added plays from 2014 to present that fall between the 'official' minimum yards and my own minimums (below the category subtitle). The rows for those additional plays will be shaded gray and have no ranking since the data is incomplete.

If you have proof of a play that is missing or missing a piece of data, please contact me.
