East pulled out a 60-52 double overtime victory after a back an forth game was sent into overtime by a late field goal after West had scored with just over a minute to play.
2014 running back Spencer Viening was not at full strength, but was tough, determined and played a great game. He's likely to be a safety or possibly even an outside backer in college at 6'0, 205-lbs already. He's a great football player who will run through a wall to help his team win. He's a sure tackler, a strong kid, and has a lot of schools looking right now. Timed speed will be important for him during next summer's camp season.
Kicker Gabe Boss sent the game into overtime and showed a big leg all night. He should have a chance to kick on the next level.
Tight end Jordan Van Dort is a big junior at 6'5, 285-lbs. Likely to play offensive line in college, he had two receptions for 82 yards and a score. He's light on his feet for a big guy, as well as coordinated and athletic. He pulls and leads on some plays as a blocker for West and looks comfortable doing that. It seemed to come easy for him as he knocked over a couple would-be defenders. He'll have to learn technique to make the transition and I'd like to see him be a little more aggressive and finish as a blocker, but he has the physical tools to play Division-1 ball and has BCS level schools looking at him right now.
Junior fullback Marcus Lambert rushed for five touchdowns last night. In the Wing-T, the backs are always going to pile up some yardage, but Lambert is a good inside runner who showed good speed as well in breaking a few long runs.
