Kalosky passes Endicott to miracle win at Bridgewater State (UPDATED)

Kalosky (Endicott athletics)
From Holy Cross High School at Endicott College to a spot on SportsCenter.
That's the journey quarterback Joe Kalosky has taken.
Kalosky helped Endicott complete an unbelievable comeback Saturday in a 29-28 victory at Bridgewater State. The Gulls were in dire straits late in the fourth quarter. Endicott faced a 4th and 10 at its own 8.
That's when the miracle started. 
Kalosky fired a long pass to Brendan Johnson, who made a ridiculous one-handed catch against two Bridgewater defenders for a 51-yard gain. Kalosky ran for five yards, then had a 15-yard personal foul on the Bears tacked on.
Endicott, however, was called for a hold on 1st and 10 from the Bridgewater 21. On 2nd and 20 from the 31, Kalosky rolled left, kept the play alive, and threw the ball to the end zone. Sheilan Velazquez jumped in heavy traffic in the end zone and came down with the ball for the tying touchdown with no time left on the clock. John Glaser's all-important extra point gave the Gulls a stunning 29-28 victory.
Here is video posted on the Endicott athletics website of those two plays. The same plays were seen on SportsCenter. Kalosky and head coach/offensive coordinator Kevin DeWall were interviewed on SportsCenter AM this morning. Here's the highlight clip on SportsCenter, which was shared by the Endicott athletics Twitter account, thanks to defensive coordinator/strength coach Greg Hadley. 
Kalosky was chosen as Commonwealth Coast Conference Football Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts in the Bridgewater State Game.
What an ending. What a comeback. And a former local quarterback was right in the middle of it. It doesn't get any better than that.

NOTE: This is not the first time Kalosky has shocked a team with a last-second pass. On Thanksgiving Day 2013, Kalosky's tipped Hail Mary to Gerron Pendarvis stunned Wolcott 39-38 on the turf of Joe Monroe Field. The video is from Brian Kalosky, Joe's brother, who also played for Endicott.
