Hawkeye Recruit Roundup: Week 8

on
Ray Hamilton
L Brunswick 36 - Strongsville 33 | (5-3)
Strongsville looked like it was going to take a big lead into halftime and cruise to an easy win. With just seconds left before half Brunswick score a TD that cut the Mustangs' lead in half and changed the momentum. Brunswick went to score 26 unanswered points. Hamilton had 6 catches for 78 yards and a late touchdown that made it a 3-point game and gave the Mustang's a chance to win, but the Mustangs were unable to complete the comeback and lost. Here is Hamilton's blog post on the loss. The best part is that he is getting a free lunch from his best friend who committed to play for Michigan.
