"We left Durham with a bad taste in our mouths [last year]," Jolly said postgame. "I kept telling the guys all season, 'Play hard. If we keep playing hard, we'll get back to where we were last year.'"
And Jolly did quite a bit by himself. On defense, he intercepted the second Reidsville play of the game, made nine tackles and broke up three passes. On offense, he ran for 87 yards on 22 carries, including a two-yard touchdown.
For that performance on both sides of the ball, he was named the game's Most Valuable Player.
