Rock scores twice in victory
With 7,400 people packing the Wayzata stadium last Friday night the Trojans outlasted their rivals the Minnetonka Skippers 23-21. The match-up was as hard hitting as you will see with massive collisions from start to finish. Each team had a junior standout in this game as Wayzata's Fritz Rock hauled in a pair of touchdowns while Skipper tight end Taylor Nelson continues to prove that he is amongst the best in the 2009 class.
Standing 6-foot-1 and 191 pounds Fritz Rock of Wayzata officially received a Gopher scholarship offer earlier this month. Fritz plays wideout and kick returner for the Trojans and it's quickly become apparent that he is a top weapon in the state of Minnesota. Every kickoff from the Skippers was sent in the opposite direction of Rock as Minnetonka did not want him returning the football.
Offensively Rock made the most of his limited chances to touch the ball. He was only thrown four passes the entire game from quarterbacks Dylan Thelemann and Matt Tarpley. Three of those passes were brought in by Rock and two resulted in touchdowns.
The first touchdown caught saw Fritz begin the play on the right side isolated on Skipper corner Andy Burns.
