On a night when the Saline varsity football team finished tearing apart the SEC Red, the Hornet student section had their very own “Moses” part a sea of Hornets fans.

Moses was played by Cam Daniels - catcher for the Saline baseball team. First Daniels whipped the fans into a frenzy, waving the Saline flag, as they waved pom-poms provided by Guaranteed Rate Saline. And then he separated the "sea of fans," and climbed the bleachers until he reached the top of the student section, where he victoriously waved the Saline flag.

Saline sophomore QB Larry Robinson etched his own mark in the MHSAA football record book Friday in Saline’s 56-14 victory at Skyline. 

In the second quarter, the Hornet defense had just mounted a successful goal-line stand, and Robinson was just looking to buy the Hornets some room to make plays.

Instead, Robinson took the snap, got a great push, fought through a crowd and found a big hole. From there, it was a footrace - one Robinson was determined to win.
