Say it ain’t so, Zak!

In a recent magazine story, North Andover’s Zak DeOssie, who has played six seasons for the N.Y. Giants (two Super Bowl wins!), said he will remain in the Metropolitan N.Y. area when his career his over.

That might not be for a while, as he is entering the second year of a nice, 3-year contract totalling $3.45 million.

In the story, DeOssie, who has made two Pro Bowls as a long snapper and has never missed a game, noted the importance of his academics at Brown.

“I got a great education that will allow me to pursue a career in finance when I’m finished with football,” said DeOssie, who attended Phillips Andover. “I’d like (the Giants) to be the only team I play for. I really like the coaches and the guys on the team, and the fans are great. I enjoy New England and Boston, but when I’m finished with pro football I think I want to stay in New York.”

Andover’s 25th anniversary

They are getting ready for a nice reunion in Andover in about three months.

The 1988 Andover Nationals, who made it to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., will celebrate 25 years since the incredible accomplishment. They were one of four U.S. teams. Now eight make it.

They are expecting full attendance of the 12 players, manager Jim Arnold and assistants Red Harris and Jim Murphy, as well as most of the parents.

Several moms from that team still meet about once a month.

Candlepins for Kids

Haverhill’s Rob Taylor, a Northeastern University student, says his Candlepin for Kids show is set to run. It will be six weekly episodes on NESN beginning next Saturday at 11:30 a.m.

The show was taped at Pilgrim Lanes in Haverhill earlier this month with kids bowling with professionals.
