CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- The Patriot League honored Fordham junior wideout Sam Ajala with the Rockin' Refuel® Performance of the Week award for his seven catches for 134 yards and a game-winning, last-second touchdown against Temple Saturday.
With 13 seconds left and trailing 29-23, Fordham quarterback Michael Nebrich lofted a pass to the end zone where Ajala reached up with his hands and pulled it down, helping the Rams tackle the Owls 30-29 Saturday. Ajala has three touchdown catches this season for the Rams.
And believe it or not, it wasn't his first last-second, Hail Mary catch, and he joined Patriot League correspondent Melanie Pellowski via Skype to discuss his Rockin' Refuel® Performance of the Week.
