Princeton Douglas ran the opening kickoff of the second half back for the first points of the game and the Cougars never looked back, scoring 28 unanswered second half points while shutting out Wyoming Seminary at Donald H. Jones Stadium. Douglas added 102 yards on 16 carries.  This was a tale of two halves.  The first started in a light, misty drizzle that saw neither team able to move the ball, resulting in 8 punts and a missed field goal by the Blue Knights.

Mikal Warfield-Payne got the second score of the day when he stepped in front of a pass from Seminary QB Adam Honis and raced 26 yards for the score making it 14-0 Cougars with 4:04 to play in the third quarter.

 

On their next series, Seminary running back Jevon Layne was drilled and lost the ball.  Kiski took over at their 37 and methodically drove to the four where Chris Rubino crossed the goal line making it 21-0. Cato Legaspi put the nail in the coffin for the Blue Knights intercepting Ari Lonstein’s pass and returning it to the 14. Rubino got his second TD of the day, again from four yards out, to close the scoring.

After the game, Kiski head coach Jame Perry and Seminary head coach Jim Anderson gathered a group of players from each team for a photograph. They were all participants in a program called Gridiron Imports, founded by Björn Werner, a former FSU and Indy Colt player from Germany and Chris Adamson who played at Dartmouth. “These players are kinda replicating the model of Bjorn where he came from Germany, went to prep school and ended up in the NFL” said Perry. “Football is growing so much in Europe, and especially in Germany, these guys go back and perform in camps. Jim and I were fortunate enough to go together over the last to summers, we’re actually roommates, and that’s how you see some of the players you see here today”.

“Prep schools are always in need of tertiary markets for getting players so for these kids, these “imported” students, this is their dream and the Prep environment, to be able to bring these kids together is a big part of what we do” said Anderson. “Football is great for us, but it’s what they do after they’re here at Kiski and Seminary that is real important to us. It’s not just about their next 4 years, it’s about their next 40 years for Jim and I” Perry added. “Here, is doesn’t stop after practice. Unlike public school when the kids go home, we go to the dining hall and the teamwork continues there, it’s not just between the white lines, it’s what’s inside that counts too” finished Anderson.
