NATICK, Mass. -- For the second time this season, Natick quarterback Troy Flutie has been named our Massachusetts Army National Guard Player of the Game.
This time around, Flutie helped the Redhawks to a 21-14 win over No. 5 Walpole in an important Bay State Herget game Friday night. The junior signal-caller completed 9 of 19 pass attempts for 175 yards and two touchdowns. Flutie also added 53 yards on the ground on 11 carries while scoring the game-winning touchdown in the third quarter.
Flutie has also stepped into in recent weeks, playing safety, and made his presence felt with a fourth-quarter interception to seal Natick's victory.
Editor Scott Barboza caught up with Flutie for this postgame interview:
