URI offers Salem's Fedrick

URI offers Fedrick

Former Eagle-Tribune MVP Jerickson Fedrick got some great news the other day when he picked up his first football scholarship offer. URI offered and the Salem record-breaker is also hearing from Towson and Albany.

“I can’t even tell you how it feels,” said the Choate postgraduate student, who rushed for 1,268 yards and scored 16 TDs this fall in just nine games. “It’s a lot of excitement. It finally happened.”

One-armed star

Wow. YouTube Zach Hodskins. He is an amazing junior basketball player at Milton (Ga.) High averaging 11.3 points a game. To do that with one arm is remarkable.

Cakes are baking

UTL birthday wishes go out to ex-Dodgers first-round pick Dennis Livingston of North Reading (the big 5-0 today), longtime local track coach and official Glen Alsup of Haverhill (62 today), PMA AD Steve Stankus (Thursday), Windham High’s proudest boys basketball fan Maura Shamon (Thursday), future PGA golf course pro Tyler Santacroce of Lawrence (turns 22 Friday) and Central basketball coach Rick Nault (turns 41 Friday).

What would Nault like for a gift? How about a Raider win over defending national champion St. Anthony’s of Jersey City that night!

Stars come out

Talk about oversized star power. Friday at the Greater Lawrence Christmas Tourney, 7-foot Carson Desrosiers (Providence) and fellow former tourney MVP 6-8 Jimmy Zenevitch (Assumption) were in attendance. In addition to the Central greats, Iowa State star 6-7 freshman Georges “The President” Niang of Methuen was on hand.

Ultimate sports family

Not to be a suck up to the boss, but Bill Burt has to be on cloud 9.

The Eagle-Tribune sports editor’s son Max is a fine golf, basketball, baseball player as a junior at St. John’s Prep, his brother Keith Burt is golf pro in Florida, and his niece, Katie Burt of Lynn, just signed a hockey scholarship to BC. Also, his nephews from Topsfield, Evan Bunker (second-team All-East running back for Trinity) and Craig Bunker (Boston Cannons of MLL), are football and lax stars.
