Jayson and Justin Ademilola traveled a long way to collect the first win of their junior seasons.
St. Peter’s Prep defeated Blessed Trinity of Roswell, Ga., 41-28, as part of the American Football Showcase at Donnybrook Stadium in Dublin, Ireland on Friday.
“It was great,” said Jayson, a 6-foot-3, 268-pound defensive end from Jersey City, N.J. “I was looking forward to the first game since the end of last season. It was a new year. Me and my brother were working hard in the off-season and we got a win to kick off the new season. Hopefully we have a good year.”
St. Peter’s Prep traveled to Dublin on Tuesday and spent the week practicing and touring the city.
“The experience was great,” Jayson said. “We got to tour around Ireland and the whole city of Dublin. We came there for business and the team came together and won our first game.”
The game was played at 2 p.m. on Friday.
“Me and my brother had a really, really good game,” Jayson said. “I probably had about 10 tackles and seven tackles for loss, something like that. The defense played really well. It was a good day for the defense and also the offense.”
Justin Ademilola is the team’s starting tight end but stitches in his hand prevented him from playing offense on Friday.
The team returned to New Jersey on Sunday, just in time for the Ademilolas to catch Notre Dame’s opener at Texas.
“The ND game, I liked it,” Jayson said. “They have to work on a few things, like everybody does. I wish they could have come out with the win but it is what it is. Hopefully they'll recover and have a good season.”
The Marauders have a bye week next before hosting the Peddie School on Sept. 17.
