Anderson Powers Army

Cardinal Hayes High School graduate Christian Anderson ran for career-best 236 yards and two touchdowns in leading Army to a 23-10 football victory over Miami (Ohio) on Saturday.

Anderson, who averaged 15.7 yards per carry and scored touchdowns on runs of 75 and 72 yards to give Army a 14-3 lead, left the game with an injury. His status for Saturday’s game at Ball State is uncertain.

In Saturday’s win over Miami (Ohio), the senior quarterback topped 100 rushing yards for the second time this season and scored the 11th and 12th touchdowns of his collegiate career. His 236 rushing yards ranks him sixth on Army’s all-time list for rushing yards in a single game.

Rangers to Honor Gilbert

The New York Rangers announced Thursday they will honor Rod Gilbert throughout the 2021-2022 season.

On Oct. 14, the Rangers open the season against the Dallas Stars and it’s the 42nd anniversary of the night Gilbert’s No. 7 was the first number retired by the Rangers. The Rangers will wear the white warm-up jerseys worn in the 1960s and 1970s with Gilbert’s name and the No. 7 on the back during pregame warmups, and each Rangers player will sign the jersey they wore, which will be auctioned to support the Garden of Dreams Foundation, one of the many charities Gilbert supported. 

In addition, the Rangers will wear a No. 7 patch on their jerseys throughout the season, and later in the season will present the first annual Rod Gilbert Mr. Ranger Award to the Rangers player “who best honors Rod’s legacy by exemplifying leadership qualities both on and off the ice, and making a significant humanitarian contribution to his community.”

Gilbert, known as Mr. Ranger, died Aug. 19 at the age of 80. His Funeral Mass was celebrated Sept. 8 at St. Monica’s Catholic Church in Manhattan.

The Jaguars lost their season opener to the Houston Texans, 37-21. In this game, Manhertz, a tight end, caught a 22-yard touchdown pass, the second touchdown reception of his career.

Anderson Propels Army

Cardinal Hayes High School graduate Christian Anderson ran for two touchdowns and threw for a third in Army’s 52-21 football victory over UConn in West Point on Saturday.

Anderson ran two yards for a touchdown, threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Alston and ran one yard for a touchdown as Army took a 21-0 lead in the first minute of the second quarter.

Anderson, a senior quarterback, finished with six carries for 21 yards and completed both of his passes for 70 yards.

“I think that is exactly what happening, he is gaining more confidence as he plays. He is doing a great job distributing the ball, handling the ball when he needs too, taking care of it when he runs it. I’ve been really proud
of him, I thought he played another really good game,” said Army coach Jeff Monken following Saturday’s win on Anderson.

Army (3-0) hosts Miami (Ohio) at noon Saturday in a game being televised by CBS Sports Network.

Koonce, Raiders Opening on ESPN

Archbishop Stepinac High School graduate Malcolm Koonce and the Las Vegas Raiders will open the 2021 season 8 p.m. tonight in ESPN’s Monday Night Football game against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Raiders finished 2-1 in preseason.

Koonce, a defensive end, was a third-round pick, 79th overall, of the Raiders in this year’s NFL Draft out of Buffalo.

At Buffalo, Koonce was a two-time, first-team All-Mid-American Conference selection. In six games as a  senior, the defensive end had 30 tackles and a team-high 6.5 tackles for a loss and five sacks. As a junior, he led the MAC with nine sacks.

At Archbishop Stepinac, Koonce had 58 tackles as a senior to earn second-team all-state honors and helped the Crusaders to an undefeated season and the 2015 Catholic school state championship.

Big Day for Anderson, Army

Cardinal Hayes High School graduate Christian Anderson ran for a career-high 119 yards on 22 carries and threw for 77 more yards in leading Army to a 38-35 football victory over Western Kentucky at Michie Stadium in West Point on Saturday.

The senior quarterback completed five of six passes, including a 40-yard touchdown pass to Braheam Murphy to give Army a 14-0 lead in the second quarter.

Army (2-0 overall) will host the UConn at noon Saturday in a game being televised by CBS Sports Network.

“I think overall in the first half we were able to execute pretty well,” Anderson said in the postgame press conference. “Then in the second half we started off strong and towards the end I think we got to figure out a way to finish the game a little better. We don’t want to be in a situation where it comes down to an onside kick. I think just for next game, being able to finish off the opponent when we have the chance will be good.”
