The Devils ran for 372 yards in the game and Hooker was perfect on the night, going 9 for 9 with 191 yards and three TD passes.
“[Hooker] was lights out,” Tolle said. “You could tell it was our fourth regional. We were ready to play.”
The Devils are glad to be alive to host Rensselaer again after a 9-7 loss to the Bombers in the regular season. The Blue Devils played that game without Hooker, who was on the mend from a broken arm (non-throwing) at the time.
“They’re impressive, they’re on a mission,” Ozmun said. “When you’re in your fourth [regional] here and you’ve got that senior group that they have, it was obvious that they came out with a mission in mind and they executed it very well. They’ve earned this win, they’ve earned this regional title.”
