UConn commit delivers game-changing interception

It seemed to be the weekend for defensive players to get their hands on the ball.

Safety Andrew Adams became the first UConn player to intercept three passes in a game in seven seasons in the Huskies' upset of Central Florida. Meanwhile, a future Husky also made a pivotal defensive play.

Aaron Garland returned an interception 61 yards to the 1 with just under 3 1/2 minutes left to set up the winning touchdown as Fenwick topped previously undefeated Highland Park 17-10 in the playoff opener. Garland just missed having his third interception return for a touchdown as a senior as Fenwick advances to play Carmel in the second round of the playoffs.

Also, Aaron McLean had touchdown catches of 14 and 65 yards as St. Mark's defeated Thayer Academy 33-8, Frank Battle had three catches for 48 yards in Belen Jesuit's 16-13 loss to Ferguson while Bridgeton (N.J.) only completed three passes in 36-14 win over Oakcrest but two went to UConn commit Nazir Williams. As I posted yesterday, UConn commit Hergy Mayala had five catches for 141 yards including a 71-yard touchdown in a 23-14 Trinity-Pawling win over Salisbury.
