The Academy of Holy Angels' offense got off to a slow start Friday night in their season opener against South St. Paul. Their defense and special teams kept the team in the game until the offense found a rhythm. When they did, the Stars rolled to a week one home victory. Here are some of the player who stood out – for both the Stars and the Packers.

Offensive/defensive lineman Rollin Rowe
The junior lineman was all over the field – especially on the defensive side of the ball. The Packers have a physical interior offensive line. Rowe was able to use his quickness and leverage to negate the size disadvantage he had to deal with. His disruption led to tackles by the junior both behind the line of scrimmage and for short gains. He also picked up a sack to force a punt.

On the offensive side of the ball, Rowe's consistent play at guard kept the pass rush away from quarterback Theo Doran and opened the inside running game for running back Alex Knoll.
