Even better than going viral, St. Anthony senior Jon Moen saw his first touchdown of the season go prime time.
In the fourth quarter of last week’s Vikings-Packers game, NBC Sunday Night Football showed video footage of Moen’s scoring run Sept. 16 against Minneapolis Washburn. Moen, a wide receiver, ran his first jet sweep of the season to perfection.
The school’s athletic department tweeted afterward that “millions of people’’ saw it.
“He’s super excited, and he should be,” Huskies coach Todd Niklaus said. “It’s great publicity for our kids.”
Osseo senior setter Ellie Hoyt registered career assist No. 1,000 in a three-game sweep against Park Center on Sept. 15.
