The nadir of Brett Draxler’s golf career arrived Sept. 8, 2013. The junior scored an 87 while on St. John’s second team — he’s well aware weekend warriors can replicate such a round. “It was terrible… the worst round I’ve shot,” he conceded.
The St. John’s University Johnnies beat the St. Thomas Tommies in a shocking 20-18 win, part of a legendary college football rivalry which brought fans out in droves Saturday to St. Paul. With new head coach Gary Fashing, the Johnnies looked like they were going to meet the same fate as they had in the last three years when the Tommies took an early 8-0 lead. But they bounced back by taking advantage of turnovers, which Sam Sura did this often at South St. Paul High School.
