Bluejay lineman Casey Doernemann was a force that the Howells-Dodge football team had to deal with all night long.
Doernemann impacted the game all night long on both sides of the ball. But his biggest play of the game came late in the 4th quarter as he helped Guardian Angels Central Catholic secure a 32-28 road win over Howells-Dodge Friday night.
Needing to score a touchdown, and less than a minute to do so, Howells-Dodge went to the air. A dump-pass near the line of scrimmage got picked off by the 6-foot, 4-inch Doernmann, which sealed a wild Bluejay win.
“Coach told me to play hard and leave everything out there. He told me to get after it every play. I never knew I had hands like that though,” Doernemann said with a smile about his game-clinching interception.
“It’s really special. I live just down the road from here, so it’s just great to get a win here. It’s awesome.”
