South Rowan High

The senior running back for the Raiders as they ended their season on a positive note. The Raiders upset the East Rowan Mustangs 28-14 on Friday in the regular-season finale.

Cousin was a major player Friday. He ran the ball 25 times for 143 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

His 16-yard run in the first quarter gave the Raiders a 7-0 lead a little more than three minutes into the game.

His second touchdown run, however, was the crucial one. With the game tied at 14 in the third quarter, Cousin capped a drive with a five-yard scoring run. It was less than three minutes after East Rowan equalized game.

That put the momentum back in the Raiders’ favor and allowed them to close out the season with a victory.
