And here’s what MyCentralJersey.com had to say about Riddick’s big game on both sides of the ball.
Theo Riddick saw the ball floating toward the end zone and knew that if he did not make this play, the Immaculata High School football team would no longer be in just a fight. It could be on severe upset alert.
Riddick reached up and came down with the pivotal interception that turned around Friday’s rivalry game, sending Immaculata to a 35-19 victory against Bridgewater-Raritan.
Oh yeah, his 269 rushing yards and four touchdowns played a big role, too.
“You can’t beat him,” Spartans quarterback Adam Burke said. “He’s down, he’s broken, he’s had his helmet ripped off, he’s been hit in the head with his helmet off, and he’s still going. You’re not going to see anyone like that in this league.”
