"Tomey guided the North to a 28-17 victory Saturday in the inaugural IntaJuice North-South All-Star Classic in Houston. Once again he relished being in the underdog role, having taken the Spartans to an unexpected 9-4 season and a victory in the New Mexico Bowl, which prompted his other Gatorade shower Dec. 23."

"Everybody talked all week like we had no chance," Tomey tells the newspaper of his North squad. "That's music to our ears."
