Defensive player of the game was the Rock, Rahkeem Hawkins who had a phenomenal pick 6 touchdown in the 2nd quarter. Last but not least was Matt Severino as the Special Teams player of the game as he nailed all 5 extra points and a 35 yard field goal in the rain. Coach Gully and the team would like to thank all the loyal fans who braved the rain and stayed around to sing the school song after victory. Let's do it again this week for Homecoming.
