For most big men on the line, the last thing they are expecting is to get an interception.
This was not the case for #3 defensive lineman Alex Roche.
Roche’s tenacious timing and skilled defense allowed him to pick off the ball from #11 Michael Priarmi and run his tail as far as he could before being taken down. The play sparked a noticeable spark in the entire team, especially the sidelines, with players dancing and celebrating the rare occasion of “the big man interception.”
When asked how he felt about the honor, Roche said, “I was just in the right spot thanks to the pressure put by the team, but boy did it feel great!” What a real team player!
