No. 1 St. John’s overwhelms No. 2 Good Counsel in national showcase

By By Samantha Pell, Washington Post, 10/13/18, 9:15AM EDT


St. John’s wide receiver Rakim Jarrett lined up at the Good Counsel 41-yard line and held a steely gaze toward the back of the end zone. There were 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter of Friday’s clash between the top-ranked Cadets and the second-ranked Falcons, and St. John’s led by 14. Jarrett understood one more touchdown would effectively seal the outcome.

Jarrett looked to his left at St. John’s quarterback Sol-Jay Maiava. He wanted the ball.
