ROSS FITZGERALD, Silver Creek football: The senior defensive back was a major part of the Raptors’ big 34-17 win over Pueblo East in the Class 3A state quarterfinals. Fitzgerald and the Raptors defense held Pueblo East at bay late in the game with three second-half interceptions. Fitzgerald picked off two passes in the fourth quarter. He also forced a fumble, which he recovered himself, to go with his three tackles and two pass deflections.
