Sports in a Minute: T.J. IV vs. E.J. IV

Brilliant brunette

We know what they say about blondes, but brunettes can be brilliant. At least University of New England senior Angie Brunette of North Andover. She was named Commonwealth Coast Conference Senior Volleyball Scholar-Athlete of the Year and made the 7-player all-conference team. She’s also a two-year captain.

T.J. IV vs. E.J. IV

In the last four games, Pinkerton sophomore Theodore “T.J.” Urbanik IV has scored 13 TDs and rushed for 408 yards on just 19 carries for an unheard of 21.5 average. In his last two games, Andover freshman Ernest “E.J.” Perry IV has completed 15 of 17 passes with 5 TD passes.

Who is hotter T.J. IV or E.J. IV? To settle the IV score we may have to ask Andover linebacker John Nevin V.

Purple reign

Steve Burton probably won’t disown his basketball-playing daughters Kendall (Villanova) and Kayla (Lehigh) but they did break quite the family tradition. The late Ron Burton Sr. was a star with the Patriots and his sons (sportscaster Steve, Paul, Philip and Ron Jr.) all followed in his footsteps and played at Northwestern. Steve’s wife, Ginni Burton, was a Big 10 champion swimmer at Northwestern.

Johnnie B good

Pingree’s fifth-year senior running back Johnnie Spears of Haverhill is enjoying a monster season with 22 overall TDs, 60 carries for 696 yards (11.6 average) and 32 catches for 616 yards (19.3 average) in eight games.

out of Luck

Ex-West Virginia All-American Tavon Austin had three long TDs (57, 81, 98 yards) as the Rams stunned the Colts on Sunday. That had to be extra sweet for the rookie as the WVU athletic director is Oliver Luck, father of the Colts’ star QB Andrew Luck.

math whiz

Linebacker Mike DeLaus of Andover is a force on the football field for unbeaten Phillips but is an even bigger star in the classroom. He scored a 770 on his Math SAT and a perfect 800 on his Math II test. His top schools are MIT, where his parents Mike DeLaus (lacrosse) and Susan Feindt (swimming) were athletes, as well as Dartmouth and Cornell.
