Gottlieb, Rossi shine in Casino Del Sol all-star game

William & Mary tight end Alex Gottlieb and Sacred Heart wide receiver Rich Rossi are putting bows on their impressive senior seasons.

Both receivers caught touchdown passes for the Stars (East) squad in the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game Monday night. The Stripes (West) squad emerged with a 24-21 win over the East before 7,839 at Kino Stadium.

LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Gottlieb while the Stars built a 14-0 lead in the first half. The Stars went ahead 21-17 in the fourth quarter on Lee's 16-yard touchdown pass to Rossi.

Former Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt (Stars) and former Fresno State head coach Pat Hill (Stripes) led the respective teams. The second annual game was played as the Eastern Energy All-Star Game last year.
