Queiro Interception Seals Northwestern Bowl Win

By on December 30, 2017

Verona Eagles fans will undoubtedly remember the name Kyle Queiro, who played youth football in Verona before heading to Bergen Catholic High School.

Queiro is now a senior safety for Northwestern University, and yesterday he snagged an interception that sealed the Wildcats’ win over Kentucky in the Music City Bowl. With with 7:49 left in the game, Queiro picked off a throw by Kentucky’s quarterback and ran it 26 yards down the sidelines, balancing like a tightrope walker without a net, for a touchdown.

If you missed the Music City Bowl game, or you just want to see more of this kind of play, you can also catch Queiro in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, a post-season game for NFL draft-eligible college players. That will be played on Saturday, January 20, at the Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, Calif.
