UNION, NJ – Jamauri Bogan, a 2014 Union High School graduate, ran for 216 yards and scored 4 touchdowns for the University of Western Michigan playing Middle Tennessee in the Popeye’s Bahamas Bowl played on Christmas Eve night in Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium.
Bogan was voted Offensive Player of the Game. When asked about his 4-touchdown performance, Bogan said, “The offensive line came to play. [Wide Receiver] Corey [Davis], Brave [wide receiver, Daniel Braverman] and [quarterback] Zach [Terrell] were doing their thing. It opened up so many things. It allows running lanes to be open, and it allows me to do the things that I do. I’m blessed. That’s what happened today. Those guys made plays and opened everything up.”
When asked how it felt to be a champion, Bogan replied “amazing. There’s no better feeling. Coach [P.J. Fleck] told us it was going to be an amazing feeling, and I think it exceeds that.”
