O'Brien and McCray Help American Squad to Win at Medal of Honor Bowl
CHARLESTON, SC -- Catawba’s Danny O’Brien and LJ McCray helped their American squad top the Nationals 20-3 at the inaugural Medal of Honor Bowl. The game was held on Saturday at Johnson Hagood Stadium and featured college seniors from around the country at all levels of the NCAA.
O’Brien ran for an early score and McCray posted a pair of tackles, including one for a loss. O’Brien set up the game’s initial score as he completed a 16-yard pass to Tennessee-Martin’s Jeremy Butler to the one. He then scored on the next play to give the Americans the lead for good.
O’Brien finished the day with 87 yards passing. He completed 5-of-11 attempts with a long of 61. His 61 yarder also went to Butler late in the fourth quarter just before the American side ran out the clock.
McCray posted his stop for a loss on the second snap by the Nationals in the second half. He also had an assisted tackle in that drive that set up a third-down attempt which was not converted.
