Cretin-Derham Hall at a glance
Hail of a start: Junior quarterback Jackson Crawford connected with Jaylen Newton on a Hail Mary touchdown pass in the final minute of the game and the Raiders defeated Lakeville South 19-14. The first-year starter completed 10 of 26 passes for 168 yards and two TDs.
Offensive leaders: Senior receiver Denzel Fondungallah, who caught 26 passes for 530 yards and nine TDs last season, and three-year starting center Nick Neumann bring the experience. "Fondungallah didn't have a big week last week, but I expect him be a major part of the Raiders game plan this week," Woodbury coach Andy Hill said.
Raiders on defense: Last Friday they limited the Cougars to 168 yards of total offense. The defense features four senior returning starters. Defensive end James Jackson had 10 tackles for loss in 2015. Nose guard Tony Neve, weighing nearly 300 pounds, clogs up running lanes. Zach Panek was the Raiders' leading tackler in 2015 with 64.
