Jr. S Courtney Greene is better known as a devastating hitter than a cover guy among the Rutgers faithful. That is not, however, meant to suggest that Greene doesn't cover. Greene continued to show his all-around game this past Friday evening with a brilliant INT of a Kaheaku-Enhada pass. It was the second RU pass that was picked off by Rutgers - in the endzone - during the game, and had major implications. Had Navy gone in for the score, Friday evening's outcome could have been very different indeed.
Instead of Navy cutting the score to a mere 3-point difference (24-21), the Scarlet Knights drove 77 yards on 15 plays as Jeremy Ito connected on a 20-yard field goal (60th field goal of the senior's career). It was a 10-point swing that instead placed the Knights ahead, 27-14.
In addition to Greene's momentum shifting play, the Junior S also contributed 4 tackles. Greene talked about his performance, commented on the record-setting Ray Rice, and more.
Greene's Play is a Momentum Changer
