Garrett Grayson, Heritage, Sr. QB — Threw a 12-yard touchdown pass on fourth down with 1:02 left, lifting Colorado State to a 24-21 victory at Boston College. Click here to watch a highlight of the touchdown.
The Rams improved to 3-1 by scoring 10 unanswered points in the fourth quarter. Grayson rolled right and found fellow senior Charles Lovett open in the end zone. The receiver dragged his feet barely in bounds.
“Charles and I have been through a lot,” Grayson said. “We’ve been through 3-9 seasons and the rough times. We’ve been through the rebuilding process with Coach Mac (Jim McIlwain). I think that last play says it all about what we’re building here.”
