Virginia Beach, VA – On Monday, Jan. 16, three members of the North Greenville University football team participated in the first annual Hansen Bowl, an all-star game for small college seniors among NAIA, Division II and Division III schools.

Defensive backs Jereme Green and Nick Rosamonda along with linebacker Nathan Batchelor were all participants in the game and started on defense for the Pony Express (the two teams were divided mainly between the east and west with team names of Pony Express and Riverboats).

While the Riverboats won the contest 14-9 thanks to two fourth quarter touchdowns, the Pony Express defense was stifling all game.

Green (1 tackle), Batchelor (1 tackle) and Rosamonda were all key members of a Pony Express defense that held the Riverboats to 170 yards in the game, 132 of which were gained in the final quarter.
