UNION CITY WINS BIG
September 1, 2012Tri-Eastern Conference
LIBERTY, IND. — Union City football coach Keith Maloy calls Jamie Antonoglou a freak, a video game, a machine, weapon, etc.
On Friday night, the senior wide receiver was the Indians’ main gear.
Antonoglou scored four touchdowns, ran for 174 yards, caught for 24 more and added an interception and a quarterback sack while playing a key defensively in Union City’s 40-13 win at Union County.
“Individually, I don’t know, I felt faster, I got really well stretched out before the game, and I was getting to the corner really well,” said Antonoglou, who would not take all the credit himself. “And the other thing was blocking tonight. It hasn’t been there in the past, but the line really stepped up tonight. Alex Henry, Aaron Burk — they all came ready to play, and that’s why I did what I did. Receivers blocking the outside, letting me get to the corner. It was just a good team effort overall.”
Antonoglou put the Indians on the board in the first quarter on fourth and 13 when quarterback Grant Shoemaker found him in the end zone wide open for a 13-yard pass.
As the quarter expired, the 6-foot, 185 pound senior broke free for a 25-yard score, and when the Patriots finally got on the board with 5:03 left in the second quarter, he again ran for a 67-yard touchdown less than a minute later.
