It WAS another standout performance from Prince Strachan in the regular season finale for the John Carroll High School Golden Rams football team.
The junior wide receiver finished with five catches for a game high 94 yards and one touchdown in the Rams’ 35-3 win over Sebastian River on homecoming night in Port St Lucie, Florida.
Prince’s 13-yard touchdown catch came on the second possession of the game and his team built a four-score lead in the first half, 28-0.
John Carroll finished the regular season at 7-1 and will face First Academy on November 13 in a 3A playoff game, hosted in Orlando, Florida.
“With homecoming going on, their record…it’s really hard to stay focused, but I’m really proud of my guys with all the different distractions you have going on this year,” John Carroll head coach Mickey Groody told the Treasure COast Palm News. “I’m so proud of my guys for buying in to what we’re doing.”
