The minute-long highlight montage was followed by a lengthy feature on the DePauw football team, including comments from interim head coach Robby Long, senior quarterback Spud Dick, junior wide receiver Alex Koors, and junior defensive back Thomas Wrona, whose 7 tackles on the afternoon included a stop on a thomas wrona wxin2009.jpgtwo-point conversion attempt which sealed the Tiger victory.

"As soon as I saw #24 run out there, I knew that it was me or him," Wrona says. "One ne was gonna win and there was no way I was letting him go."

"My previous three years, we haven't been able to beat em," Dick notes. "So this is huge. I really can't say enough about how well everybody played to be able to pull this out."
