Behind the strong arm of quarterback Ross Deaton, the White team overcame a 14-0 deficit on Saturday to defeat the Maroon team 22-20 in the Campbellsville University Spring Game.
The Maroon squad jumped out to a 14-0 lead after the defense recovered a fumble for a touchdown romp. But, the White team fought back behind several big pass plays from Deaton and led 22-14 before the Maroon team scored again late in the game.
The Maroon squad had two chances within the last five minutes of the three-period game to retake the lead. However, the defense held for the White team in preserving the win.
"I thought our guys gave a great effort today," said first-year head coach Perry Thomas. "We've come a long way since January and I'm really pleased with what I saw out there."
