HALFTIME: SOUTH 18, NORTH 3
FINAL: SOUTH 45, NORTH 16
The 2018 Reese’s Senior Bowl is in the books with the South team beating the North team 45-16. It was overcast for most of the game and then the rain rolled through in the second half. Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta was named the game’s Most Valuable Player after throwing for 198 yards and 3 TDs. LSU WR D.J. Chark and San Diego State RB Rashaad Penny were named Co-Most Outstanding Player for the South team and Wyoming QB Josh Allen was named Most Outstanding Player for the North team. The game concludes a week of grueling practices, fun events, and one of the biggest job interviews for more than 110 of the top senior football players in the nation. Below I will go quarter-by-quarter with a stream of consciousness style breakdown of the game.
I will have a column up tomorrow highlighting the 5 Risers and 5 Fallers for each team. I will also be uploading thirty 2 to 3-minute interviews I was able to conduct during the week. I would like to thank Senior Bowl director Phil Savage, Media Director Rob Lehocky, and Ops Director Patrick Woo for the first class event they put on this week. It is an honor to have covered the event again this year, and I look forward to being back there for the 2019 Reese’s Senior Bowl.
