Feat of the Week: Gowins Runs Wild
St. Anthony's back records second-best day in program history.
Everyone said Jordan Gowins would shine in the new system.
But what happened Saturday in Westchester went beyond hyperbole. Gowins, a junior running back, rushed for a career-high 298 yards and three touchdowns on 18 attempts as St. Anthony's ran past host Stepinac, 31-14.
Gowins' big day was the second-best rushing performance in program history. Only former Penn State star Matt Hahn has had a bigger day for the Friars when he ran for 352 yards against Holy Trinity in 2003.
Gowins averaged 16.5 yards per carry against Stepinac, which included a 94-yard breakaway that gave the Friars a 28-14 edge early in the fourth.
Gowns leads all Long Island rushers with 609 yards and 7 TDs in three games.
And Gowins has done it all on the road. St. Anthony's plays its home opener Friday at 7 p.m. against Staten Island rival Farrell.
The spread offense installed during the off-season was built with Gowins, a Bellport native with a football pedigree, in mind. We're just three games into 2013, but there's no doubt it's working.
