On the next play Brown would again find the end zone this time he was on the receiving end of a beautifully thrown ball by Tom Savage for the 5 yard touchdown.


The Lions were just warming up as two possessions later the Lions would show the quick strike capability when Savage would hit the speedy Billy Morgon for a 35 yard touchdown.

Putting the Lions up by a score of 28-0 at end of the first quarter.

    I want to state that the new sophomore outside linerbacker, Drew Formica, was awesome. This is a real future talent for O’hara. Joe Pa should have his eye on this kid.
