Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria already has five touchdown catches this season, more than All-Pro teammate Calvin “Megatron” Johnson.
That name should sound familiar to Patriots fans. Fauria is the nephew of former New England tight end Christian Fauria, a key member of two Super Bowl champion teams.
Every season, we are reminded how important a placekicker who can reliably kick extra points is to a high school team. Look at the difference Andover’s Ryan Payne made in a season-opening win over North Andover.
Concord-Carlisle found a kicker they could count on this season in a very unlikely place — the girls soccer team.
Abigail Ojemann is the team’s varsity kicker, and was 5 for 5 on extra points in its win over Lexington.
It’s been a big fall for former Lowell Spinners, including Saturday’s near no-hitter for Anibal Sanchez. But it’s not just on the field.
The Spinners were awarded with the “Golden Bobble Head” with the “best theme night” of the year in minor league baseball last week. Their “Military Hero Card Set,” honoring military from the Merrimack Valley, won the honor, which was accepted by general manager Tim Bawmann and media relations guru Jon Boswell.
