2014 Providence Catholic graduate, Miles Boykin caught a 5 yard touchdown pass in the first quarter for the Baltimore Ravens. In the fourth quarter, 2012 graduate of Lincoln-Way West BJ Bello of the New York Jets returned a recovered a blocked punt for a touchdown.
The Ravens won the game 42 to 21. It was Boykin’s third touchdown reception of the year in his rookie season. Bello is a back-up linebacker in his third year in the NFL.
