Kafka shines in Shrine Game
Andrew Quarless (Uniondale) caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Mike Kafka with 6 seconds remaining, lifting the East to a 13-10 win over the West in Orlando, Fla., in the annual Shrine Game showcase for college all-stars looking to make an impression on NFL scouts.
The Northwestern quarterback overcame a slow start to lead an 11-play, 55-yard drive on a day when his team's defense was dominant. He finished with 150 yards passing and was selected the offensive MVP in the game.
A play before the winning TD pass to Penn State's tight end, Kafka was smothered and surrounded by pass rushers but somehow managed to elude them for 9 yards up the middle.
