Things Looking up for Rush Coach Hohensee

Chicago Rush coach Mike Hohensee was struck by a car in a grocery store parking lot on Friday afternoon and suffered serious but not life threatening injuries. He was released on Saturday to rest at home. The Rush coach was feeling well enough to lead his team in their first Monday Night Football appearance but opted to coach from a box at the Allstate Arena.

For much of the game Hohensee had to suffer watching his team play from behind. The Rush rallied late and with just 3 minutes remaining in the game had the opportunity to kick a field goal to take a one-point lead but the attempt was blocked. Moments later linebacker John Moyer tipped a pass, intercepted it then ran it in for a defensive touchdown. The Coach stepped out of the box and gave a fist to the sky gesture after the play.

The Rush victory over the Philadephia Soul continues the Rush winning streak to seven games improving their record to 7-1 and continuing their home-unbeaten streak that goes back to March 10, 2006.
