The play put the perfect stamp on what defensive ends Mitchell Fraboni and Charlie Trevino meant brought to the Mountain Pointe devastating defense.
With the Pride leading 28-13 against Hamilton, the Huskies put together a few first downs and got to the Mountain Pointe 34.
Hamilton quarterback Sam Sasso dropped backed, left to the pocket toward the Hamilton sideline and Fraboni, who came all the way from the other side of the field, hit Sasso as he was getting ready to throw.
Trevino intercepted it and on the next play Paul Lucas went 56 yards to Mountain Pointe up 35-13.
“That kind of sealed the deal right there,” Trevino said. “It’s kind of representative of the way Mitch and I play – go hard every play. I actually missed on assignment. I was hustling from behind and my teammate picked me up.”
Both players are physical, surprisingly powerful and persistent. It’s a combination that led to defensive pressure all year long and they are two of the reasons Mountain Pointe gave Hamilton its first ever three-loss season.
“I can’t even describe it, all of those four years coming to end with all of my guys,” Trevino said. “I can’t even describe it.”
