Overall Player of the Game: #8 SAM ROSEN, Wide Receiver/ Defensive Back
“Sam Rosen proved yet again how invaluable he is to the Red Raider cause as he totaled 101 yards on kickoff returns and added 109 yards on 6 receptions while scoring a critical two-point conversion that tied the game at 26-26 in the 4th quarter. Rosen also defended a pair of passes, blocked a B-R field goal attempt and totaled 2 tackles in a superlative effort.”
Offensive Player of the Game: #9 RYAN WELSH, Running Back/ Defensive Back
“Welsh not only carried the ball 28 times for 68 yards, but he caught two Matt Petercuskie passes including a 70-yard touchdown strike. He added a 9-yard rush into paydirt and proved the workhorse of the BHS offensive scheme.”
Defensive Player of the Game: #58 JOSHUA VON STAATS, Middle Linebacker/ Guard
“This game was clearly Von Staats’ best overall career performance against a lightning-quick B-R offense. Von Staats totaled 13 tackles on the night including 9 solo stops and earned him the top Red Raider in Barnstable’s best-played game yet.”
Special Teams Player of the Game: #21 MICHAEL TURNER, Wide Receiver/ Defensive Back
“Michael Turner’s 53-yard interception return from the B-R goal line may have been a defensive gem, but his efforts and leadership throughout the night proved deserving of accolades.”
