View Full Version : Looking for Atwater/Okoye clip to teach high school physics!

Hey, everyone. I've been a member here for a long time but I haven't posted much in the last few years.

I'm a student teacher this semester teaching high school physics, and I've got a unit coming up on momentum, impulse, and collisions. I'm planning to use the legendary Atwater-Okoye hit to lead into the lesson. And yes, I will be teaching this lesson in a Broncos jersey.

What I'm looking for is a good-quality video clip of the hit. I've seen the stuff on YouTube, and I can use that if necessary, but I'd prefer to have something in higher resolution/quality. I'm not expecting full 1080p HD or anything like that obviously, but a good, reasonably clean standard-def clip of the whole play would be great. I want to be able to see Okoye taking the handoff and running, so the students can estimate his speed going into the hit.

I can edit it and clip it down to what I need, so if I have to pull it out of a full-game video, that's fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: In case someone needs it, the hit was on MNF on Sept. 17, 1990.

Atwater is one of my alltime favorite Broncos

That is a great idea.

Wish you were my physics teacher, I am 1 of 2 guys in my physics class so the sports is kept at a minimum

Use lt's career to show the descent of gravity.

What about Al Wilson vs. Zack Crockett from that snow game a few years back. Great hit, but i'm still pissed we lost that game...

Let me know if you want the play directly from the broadcast as well. I could throw it up on youtube for you.

That would be great! Even better would be if you could get me a raw video file, like a wmv or whatever so I could just embed it in my powerpoint. (Is there some way to download a clip off youtube?)

The youtube vid Neckbeard posted above is okay, but I'd much rather have one without the interviews and the other filler.

Little update to this thread: BigPlayShay hooked me up with a crystal-clear mpeg of the actual play from the game. Thanks to everyone for helping me out!

You are so lucky. By law of numbers you are guarantee at least one girl.

Isn't this a complicated example of 2 body momentum conservation since the players likely pushed off from the Earth during their interaction? I bet Atwater probably moved the Earth a few inches.
