MINT HILL, NC – The Independence Patriots junior wide receiver had himself a solid performance on Friday night against Charlotte Catholic in a hard fought 17-6 loss.

Moraglia had 7 pass receptions for a total of 95 yards which equates to 47% of the Patriots offensive production. Independence accumulated 196 yards of total offense in the football game. Moraglia also had two punt returns for 21 yards giving him a total of 116 all purpose yards for the night.

Moraglia has been a consistent performer all season for the Patriots, and continues to improve with each weekly performance. He is reliable, has soft hands, and runs good routes. He is also willing to deliver a solid hit on defenders after catching the football trying to gain extra yardage.

Independence Quarterback Cameron Kromah accumulated 205 yards in passing offense with 13 completions on 21 pass attempts. He was sacked two times, and rushed for (-1)  yard in the game and is runner up in this weeks selection. He engineered a nice scoring drive in the fourth quarter for the Patriots.

Meanwhile, Joe Reddish played an excellent football game on the defensive side of the ball with 13 total tackles, including 5 solo tackles and deserves honorable mention.

The sports writers at the Mint Hill Times would like to congratulate Joe Moraglia for being selected the Player of the Week. Also, we want to acknowledge the performances by Cameron Kromah and Joe Reddish for their contributions.
