Syracuse Football: Catching Up With the Commits - Brantley is Unstoppable in Overtime Loss

Alvin Cornelius (WR, 6'3", 190)  continues his run through New York City, helping Tottenville (9-1) in their 31-0 win over Brooklyn Technical.  Cornelius has been running the ball more.  He carried six times for 25 yards and a touchdown, and intercepted a pass.

Harold Brantley (DT, 6'3", 280) struggled a bit on offense as his Hershey (8-3) squad headed into overtime, with the game knotted up at 20 against Red Land.  Hershey coach Mark Painter didn't waiver, however, in his trust in Brantley, and gave the bruising fullback a touch on every play of overtime.  Brantley was a bit outshined by his Red Land counterpart John Ford who ran for 232 yards and five touchdowns, Brantley had a great performance in his own right.  He ran 15 times for 80 yards, 30 of which were in overtime, and scored 3 TDs on the ground, ending each overtime series.  It was Red Land who decided to finally go for two, and they converted, winning the game after three overtimes.  Brantley also caught a pass for 26 yards and a touchdown, and was a monster on defense, where he recorded eight tackles and two sacks.
