Senior Superlatives!

Special group hits field on Turkey Day for final time

(Continued)

Instead of wallowing in his troubles, Moscaritolo became a coach for his fellow linebackers. He was finally cleared to play against Manchester Essex, and over the last three games has regained his form as the Hornets set their eyes on a postseason run.

Haskell makes amazing return

Georgetown coach Paul Sobolewski wasn’t quite sure what to expect from senior Kenny Haskell. After suffering concussion issues as a sophomore, Haskell sat out his entire junior season. But he decided to come out this season, and the Royals are certainly happy he did.

“He came out, won the job at middle linebacker, and has had a great year,” said Sobolewski. “When you are as young a team as we are, you need someone that you can lead on, and he has been our guy.”

Sobolewski knew he was asking a lot when he asked receiver Tom Zargaj to move to running back after the Royals lost top back Matt Prescott to an injury.

But his anxiety was calmed when, in Zargaj’s first game at halfback, he broke off a 64-yard touchdown run.

“He had never played running back before and had five touchdown catches as a senior,” said Sobolewski. “But he graciously accepted the move and did a great job. He was also a great captain.”

No doubting Scarpa and his wit

Some could be self-conscious about their height, but Andover QB C.J. Scarpa — listed at 5-foot-9 — isn’t afraid to make light of the situation.

Following one snap over his head in the preseason, he could be heard saying to his center, ‘Hey, do you think I’m 6-feet-tall or something?’”

Scarpa, of course, has shattered the area record with 30 touchdown passes this season. And he’s already made his college plans. Next fall, he will be playing quarterback at Elon University in Elon, N.C.
