Patriot’s Coach Bill Belichick always seems to mention intelligence
when drafting his players. Maybe he should be keeping tabs on Reilly Naton
in four years. The Yale-bound senior scored on an electrifying 63-yard TD pass from
Matt O’Keefe in the fourth quarter, then sealed the victory with a 30-yard
interception return with less than four minutes remaining, as the No.
2-ranked Dragons beat No. 3 ranked Xaverian, 31-14, at The Hawk Bowl
in Westwood.

“Naton is a hell of a football player and he got them to bite on a fake screen,” said Maimaron. “He
was able to sell it and he got by the corner.”

It was billed as the biggest game of the high school season and the
fans could see why, as both teams displayed big-game performances in
pressure situations and took advantage of key turnovers which always
seem to decide the outcome.
