Judson RB Nathaniel Stanley rushes for 218 yards, 2 TDs, is named Jon Wayne Player of the Game for Game 2 of KSAT Pigskin Classic

Junior running back had huge day in Rockets’ 46-43 victory over Johnson

SAN ANTONIO – Game 2 of the KSAT Pigskin Classic between the Judson Rockets and Johnson Jaguars was a high-scoring affair that saw big play after big play from both teams.

But it was the Judson rushing game that ultimately prevailed in overtime, as the Rockets defeated the Jaguars, 46-43.

Junior running back Nathaniel Stanley had 218 yards and two touchdowns in the victory. He was named Jon Wayne Player of the game.

“I’d like to thank my family and the team. They rallied and fought through adversity,” Stanley said.

The game saw the Rockets take an early lead, thanks, in part, to Stanley’s 54-yard touchdown run in the first half. He had 94 yards on eight carries at the break.

Johnson rallied from a 27-7 halftime deficit, to take the game into overtime.

But thanks to Stanley’s contributions and the team’s efforts during the second half and overtime, Judson was able to maintain their composure and successfully kick a game-winning field goal for their first win of the season.

During each game, fans can vote for who they think should be named player of the game. Pick correctly and you could win a pair of tickets to a 2023 SA Gunslingers game and get a chance at the grand prize — a $10,000 Home Makeover Package from Jon Wayne Service Company.
