St. John's wide receiver Rakim Jarrett lined up at the Good Counsel 41-yard line and held a steely gaze toward the back of the end zone. There were 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter of Friday's clash between the top-ranked Cadets and the second-ranked Falcons, and St. John's led by 14. Jarrett understood one more touchdown would effectively seal the outcome.
Jarrett looked to his left at St. John's quarterback Sol-Jay Maiava. He wanted the ball.
Flashing open on the right side, Jarrett caught his quarterback's pass and took it 41 yards down the sideline for the final touchdown of the night. The sea of red in the stands for the Cadets roared. St. John's found itself at the top once more: still undefeated, still the team to beat.
"I took it upon myself," Jarrett said after the Cadets' 31-10 win at Catholic University. "I know that big players make big plays, and so I did it for my team."
