  1. cray should be ahead of cultrera in every category.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Really, what makes you say that? I seem to recall the only game Souhegan lost was with Cultera injured and Cray playing the second half. Also, isn't he a 3 year starter, and Cray only a 2 year starter?

    ReplyDelete
  3. You spelled "Lquan Desir" name wrong. And no tyler Dunnutte in the O-line? first team allstate

    ReplyDelete
  4. That UL All-State team was a joke 12:36. Nothing against Dunnutte, but there were easily 4 or 5 more deserving players than the ones they listed on just the lines alone.

    ReplyDelete
  5. 10:05...As an outsider, not affiliated with Souhegan, i have watched a few of their games and cray is bigger, stronger, faster. And from what I have seen, Cray is a much bigger presence in the backfield and he makes more plays. Not saying cultera isnt good, just that cray is better.

    ReplyDelete
  6. 3:58, duly noted. My point wasn't so much that Cultera was better or not, but that Cray isn't just better period. They're both very different from each other. For instance, as you say Cray is bigger, that is just not true. Cultrera is listed 25 lbs heavier and looks closer to 280 and is more of a run stuffer while Cray is taller and leaner with better passrushing ability. It really depends what you're looking for. Run stuffer or sack machine? I will say that Cultera seems to have the better technique which is why I like him a bit more, but after looking around a lot this year (as I'm not from Amherst either) they're both Top 4 in my opinion so the differences are pretty small.

  7. didnt fatello play linebacker?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I thought I remembered him playing linebacker, but the roster lists him as a DB...

    ReplyDelete
  9. Proulx deserved the U.L. team position. Shame....

    ReplyDelete
  10. only two central kids on the whole list. i know they weren't as loaded as 2008 but they were still a good team.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Garbage. Anyone that knows these two kids knows that cray is better than cultrera in every phase of the game. Not to mention cray has a better attitude. He's a fighter, while cultrera will take himself out when faced with any difficulty. Cultrera might be bigger, but he's shorter, weaker, and slower. His technique is also worse than crays on defense. Offensively you can't compare technique, but cray is the more dominant player. clear cut.

    ReplyDelete
  12. 9:56, you have no idea what you're talking about. As someone who has followed Souhegan football for a while now I've greatly enjoyed watching Sean and Colin develop over the years. To see you tear even one of them down is sad. They're both tremendous football players and will play high level college ball. And who are you to comment on character? Who are you to even comment on something stupid like strength even? Are you there in the weight room with them every day? Sure, Colin deserves more credit than he currently gets, but do it without tearing down Sean, because they're both outstanding football players and great kids.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh, and 9:56, as someone who knows the situation I can tell you that Sean never took himself out "when faced with any difficulty." Both of them played nearly every snap, and both of them rarely had "difficulty" because they were so far above the competition level. Either you don't know the players that well or you just don't understand the line at all.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Central may have only two players listed on this page, but their QB, RB, and one of their receivers is also ranked on this site.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow, thought I'd check this before I went to bed since a buddy told me to today in school. Somebody (I can tell it's the same poster) really really doesn't like me and loves Colin, haha. That's alright, he's one of my brothers in a back to back state championship run.

    What's the hate against me for though? At least 11:10 seems to be a decent human being. I guess I must be doing something right to be ranked so high and to be getting recruited by a ton of the same schools as Cray. Yeah, Cray deserves more credit. Cool. Just don't attack me for no reason in the process on the internet for everyone to see under the protection of anonymity. This is why I got tired of these stupid blogs: angry people who know nothing about football attacking high school kids. Pathetic. I'm done reading this crap. Have fun guys.

    -Sean C

    ReplyDelete
  16. Sean if I see a comment on here that I think is inappropriate or offensive I delete it right away. If someone is trashing a player, and all they say is, "John Smith sucks" it gets deleted. But if someone is comparing two players, says he thinks one is better than the other and backs it up I will leave it. I don't think the poster was trashing you, Sean. He probably could have been more respectful with the way he chose his words, but I have seen much worse things written.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think he meant the part about his character being questioned on the field with the whole quitting at first sign of troublt. I understand his anger over that part at least.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I agree with the above post and Sean. I'd be ticked too if someone called me out as being a quitter on some blog too.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ginnard? Ginnard at number 7 even? Are you joking or not? I can't tell. According to this, Ginnard is better than Daigneau. Maybe your confusing Colin for Ian, who graduated? Maybe Daigneau is only 12th best, but that puts Ginnard clean off the list.

    ReplyDelete
  20. jeremy... u should do a list of best two way players in the state. any nominees? comments?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Where is BG's Bayne on the DB list. Had 3 picks against pinkerton, one for 6. had like 8 or 9 on the year. i dont know many of the other players stats so if all 17 of those listed had better seasons than Bayne so be it

    ReplyDelete
  22. how about some love for Tommy Carver Acil Tare. big diesel 34
    stay classy knuckleheads

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yeah 9:55 is pretty uninformed. Souhegan's got 9 seniors being recruited right now. 3 are committed to elite academic NESCAC schools when they had opportunities to go higher, 3 will go D2 or higher in Cultrera, Cray, and Wing, and 3 others will likely go to solid D3 programs. Name one other school that can say that, then factor in that Souhegan's enrollment is under 900. That is very impressive. Maybe 9:55 doesn't care about Souhegan but there should at least be some respect for the great talent and the season the boys had. Way to go Sabers!

    ReplyDelete
  24. yes, Jeremy, I think you missed one in not including Matt Bayne in your list of defensive backs. Was that just an oversight? Bayne made the UL all-star team, and I think is considered at BG to be more of an "all star" than Carluccio. Bayne plays safety, and is a real playmaker.

    ReplyDelete
  25. How can you not include Pinkertons Big OT CJ Trieb. He is being recruited by several Div 1aa schools. Pinkerton ran behind him and he killed people......

    ReplyDelete
  26. Because it doesn't go to the biggest body, but rather to the best LINEMEN in the state. He can be 300+ all he wants but as I recall he was too big and slow to do much against BG's DL as he and the rest of the PA line got schooled because they were so slow. I imagine Jeremy picked the best linemen he's seen, not just the biggest most impressive looking ones. Honestly Trieb is just a big boy and not much else.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow, Souhegan is screwed next year with all of these SR's graduating this year on the line. They have to play at Londonderry and home vs Central according to nhfootballreport.com! They would have won those games if they played them this year with Jellison, Petropulos, Cultera, Cray, and company, but they're gonna get wrecked next year. They have no linemen left for next year to compete against those teams.

    ReplyDelete
  28. No guarantee that they would have won. Both those teams better than Milford

    ReplyDelete
  29. And Milford beat a squad of living dead and JVs. When the big boys were in it was 37-0 and could have been worse.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Brad Tiernan-2010? Thought he was a junior or a sophmore?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Jellison and Comstock are the same position. How is one a linebacker and the other a lineman? Jeremy check your research they are both outside linebackers. Jellison is the lolb and Comstock is the rolb.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Speaking of Comstock, he's legit better than Jellison on defense Jeremy. Jellison's the better player overall, but Comstock is the better defender for your rankings. And Ginnard above Daigneau is hilarious. Merry Christmas everybody!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Who is going where to college? It will be interesting to see. Alot of decisions are not made strictly on highest level of football.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've heard a lot of the rumors out of Souhegan, so here they are:

    Jellison (full ride from UNH)- Amherst
    Petropulos - Amherst
    Comstock - Bates
    Cultrera - Undecided
    Cray - Undecided
    Wing - Undecided
    Daigneau - Undecided
    Marcucci - Undecided
    Eusebio - Undecided
    Lyon - Not looking to play football

    Also heard Solano was headed to Amherst and nhfootballreport.com states Jesse Green (Winny) is headed to Mass Maritime. That's all I've heard of so far.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You mean Jesse Gould from Winny? Not sure who Jesse Green is...

    ReplyDelete
  36. IDK, Roger Brown might've messed up the last name. I think it was a lineman if I recall the article. Check it out in the nhfootballreport.com archives from not too long ago.

    ReplyDelete
  37. When is Shrine team selected??

    ReplyDelete
  38. Sometime this month or next month I believe. Due to the players/team restriction some good players are gonna miss out though.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ok, after the raving reviews from O'Reilly, Jeremy, and every PA fan to ever post on this site I went onto youtube today with mission: find Ben Proulx and CJ Trieb's highlight videos. Lo and behold, I find them.

    Whoever said that Trieb was going D1 (I'm looking at you O'Reilly and anonymous PA posters) is a fool. Easily the slowest lineman I have ever seen. I saw the BG/PA game this year but admit I was more following the ball than the line, but I did catch him getting scorched by the speed of BG's defense on occasion. I figured that maybe it was just an off game against a great opponent, but it's much more than that. This film doesn't lie. All that size, but not the athleticism or strength to do anything but run down the field and get in the way of his backs trying to make cuts. I never want to hear another word about Trieb again, sorry. He does have 3 nice pancakes on his reel where he dominates... a 160 lbs Concord kid. I'm sure he's a great kid and all, but no way despite the size is he D1 material. D1 lineman are the types of kids that run like backs in HS. By the way, the "Offseason Training" section at the end is classic! Just brought a big ole smile on my face. Swings a hammer at a tire, flips the tire a couple times, the runs with a sled about 10 yards with no weight on it. Classic!

    As for Proulx, the kid's REAL quick and LEGIT. He, Solano, and Jellison are easily the best Defensive Ends I've seen this year (best DT/NGs I've seen are the two Souhegan kids you guys were fighing over being better, Rosenberg, and Dylan Ryan). Kid's got potential but needs to bulk up a bit. Could be an excellent 1AA/D2 DE if coached and bulked up properly. My only thing with him is that any time he does even the slightest thing right, such as joining in on a gang tackle after a kid's already wrapped up, he goes nuts like he's in the NFL and starts celebrating like he won the 'Marry Jessica Alba Lottery.' It's pretty excessive and annoying really.

    I know that I'm no scout, but I have seen my fair share of HS and college football over the years and have seen kids play at these high levels. Proulx is real impressive, Trieb not so much.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Trieb seems to have an official set up with Sacred Heart, but I overall agree with your analysis. I went to see the youtube video after reading this. If he ends up playing for Sacred Heart, it will be real tough for him to find the field, and that's about as small as it gets for D1. Honestly, I just think the D1 and D2 schools are giving him looks based on his size as his playing hasn't really impressed anyone. At the beginning of the season O'Reilly was mentioning Syracuse, Maryland, etc for Trieb. Now it's down to a couple real small 1AAs and a D2. Where will it be by signing day? A whole lot of size and nothing else.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Dear 7:32 You are being a little harsh on the players but what you have to remember what these schools look for is potential. Trieb though not the quickest of foot, for a 300lb kid moves decent and is a legit 6'5' 310lb+. Remember the the old saying you can't teach size.
    As far as Proulx he is very good athlete that plays with intensity with long lean frame (legit 6'4"+)that will carry another 30lbs+ with solid year in weightroom. Not running six days a week playing hoop will keep the weight on too. To complain about his enthusiasm/intensity is ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am pretty sure Proulx has an offer from Sacred Heart, I am friends with an assistant coach on their staff and he says Proulx is in their top 5 recruits also in the news paper the merrimack coach seemed very excited about him.

    ReplyDelete
  43. 5:46 More Souhegan rumors.....Cray being looked by a D1 and a couple New England D2s, Holy Cross looking at Cultera and Daigneau headed to WPI as ILB/OLB. Can you confirm any of this? Is Cultera really being looked at by Holy Cross?

    ReplyDelete
  44. flynn and solano were about equal as far as BG linemen go ask anyone on the team.
    Trav was interchangeable with the other NG who went down and probably still got snubbed from all state honorable mention.
    Proulx is great though. by far Pinkertons best player. no one handled him all year i hope he does go to a competitive D1AA college because he deserves it and im sure will be successfull there

    ReplyDelete
  45. I did hear about Holy Cross being interested in Cultera as well, but don't know where that's gone as I don't actually know the kid personally. From what I've heard Cultera and Cray both have a bunch of northeast 1AA and D2 programs either recruiting them or giving them serious looks.

    As for Daigneau, I heard he's been looking at a lot of the NESCAC schools as well as WPI and some of the NY schools like Rochester and Union. If I was a betting man I'd say Daigneau to WPI, and Cultera and Cray at LEAST at D2, and probable offers or recruited walkon slots at 1AA schools. Crazy talent coming out of that town this year! Hope that answered you a bit 3:24.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The recruiting process is very interesting. Most of your official visits should be set by now if you are a top recruit. To get a "preferred walk on" spot to a UNH, UMaine or any other D1AA school in NE is not as hard to achieve as you might think. If you have a scholarship offer(athletic money) to a D2 school or a "preferred walk on" offer to a D1AA take the D2 offer and have your school paid for. Most of the D2 schools around a great academic schools as well.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Though you have to look at the other side too, 11:35. By being a "preferred" walkon you are invited to camp and are part of that team's core 90 players as a freshman. You're treated just like any other member of the team, just no scholarship at the moment. Thus, it is not "easy" to get a preffered walkon slot. Now, regular walkon slots are given out like candy, but that's a different story. If you go to UNH as a preferred walkon you may actually be paying less than say going to Bentley or St. A's on a partial scholarship because those schools are 40+ grand a year, so what's a 10 grand scholarship really doing for you when instate tuition at UNH is so much lower still without a scholarship? Also, as a preferred walkon you are part of their plan for the future and not just a regular walkon that shows up first day of classes to spend 5 years (redshirt) getting beat up on in practice to no avail. Many times preferred walkons can play their way into scholarships. The second you're in the two-deep depth chart at UNH for instance, you've got yourself a partial scholarship. If you start, full ride. It's sort of a pay as you play deal, and should not just be skipped over because of a D2 offer. The bottom line and future potential is what matters, and a scholarship at a local D2 school is likely more expensive than paying full tuition at UNH as an instate recruit, plus you can earn your way into a scholarship (which happens all the time by the way). UNH preferred walkons: Ball, Santos, Mailloux, Sweeney... all have or had offers by now.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This year Holy Cross has been recruiting several players in NH. If you are not in the top 10% of your class it won't matter anyway becaue you will never get into the school

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yeah, that might be a problem for some of the kids like Cultera. I don't believe he's a dummy or anything but also don't believe his grades are there for Holy Cross either.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Nah man, he's right about Trieb. Trieb still moves slow, even for a 300+ pounder. D1 linemen are his size and bigger and all usually run at the very least 5.2. Every time we played PA I came away thinking he might be able to run a 7.2, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  51. 12:53 that is a good point if the scholarship is not big enough but say they are covering 2/3's of it with athletic and grant money. I guess it comes down to what the player wants and ultimately how good they really are. Does a player want to redshirt a year, not play freshman year. Special teams, sophomore year then realize some freshman just came in and took the spot that was suppose to be theirs junior and senior year? I know I am being cynical but definitely possible. I say go D2 get arguably a better education than a state schoo, play sooner and have fun.
    I think it is tough for some kids that have been starting both ways varsity since sophomore year to go to a program and sit...Depends on the player.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Solano's status for next year is still up in the air. Let's not speculate until we know for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I don't know, Jeremy. I could have sworn that I read somewhere Solano was going to Amherst. Haha, maybe some of these kids will just post what's up so we don' have to wonder! Takes the fun out of it though

    ReplyDelete
  54. Solano just e-mailed me himself today and it's still up in the air.

    ReplyDelete
  55. well, we all look like fools now...

    ReplyDelete
  56. they say the shrine team has been picked,thoughts on div.3 players?6 total,no more then 2 per team. or any div. for that matter?

    ReplyDelete
  57. I guarantee that Cray and Cultera got screwed over now that you mention the whole D-III thing. Only two nominations per team and Beliveau loves Jellison and Petropulos more than life itself. I guarantee those were his two nominees. The NH lines will be significantly weaker without Cray and Cultera. Perfect example of deserving players being left out because of all of these restrictions on the 36. Just take the top 36 players in the state and forget the political correctness of "even representation" of the shrine selection process and you'll get the true "NH All Star" team. Same goes for BG and so on. Who gets left out? Certainly many of the state's best players will not be featured in the Shrine Bowl.

    ReplyDelete
  58. DIII S/B Ibarra, Powers, Jones, Montville, Cray, Jellison

    ReplyDelete
  59. Has everyone received their invites already?

    ReplyDelete
  60. i bet that once some players decline that the 2 souhegan linemen got picked as replacement

    ReplyDelete
  61. But if we went by actual players ability, there wouldn't be anyone from DIV VI and one or two from Div V.....

    but that wouldn't be right, or would it?

    ReplyDelete
  62. 2:55, there's no way you are the first to know all 6 D-III acceptees before even the papers get ahold of the info! I still say that the two linemen at Souhegan will get snubbed for Jellison and Petropulos, but they really should get in as replacements because they're two of the best players in the state, regardless of position.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Who is on shrine team? thought invites went out already.

    ReplyDelete
  64. We don't know yet but the papers seem to think that they'll know by early February. I just hope they get it right by picking the "Best" players, and not just this 2 per team crap. A lot of great players will miss out that way. For example, BG. With only two nominations, who misses out? Kell? Kana? Philips? Hall? Flynn? Etc, etc. Same thing with teams like Souhegan between Jellison, Petropulos, Cultera, and Cray. Or Pinkerton, who although they didn't have a good season still had some great individual players. Who misses out on that team? Guinto should be healthy by summer, then you have Proulx, then Trieb! A lot of great players are going to miss out because of the current nomination process and it's ashame, especially if VT finally beats us with that stud QB.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Selection letters arrived today

    ReplyDelete
  66. which 2 souhegan kids made it? come on someone knows!

    ReplyDelete
  67. No idea yet. Just came out this weekend apparently. More importantly, how about which two from BG? Only two kids from teams like those is a shame because whoever gets left out could've really helped in a starting way in all likelihood for team New Hampshire. I hate the way selections are set up right now. Do we really need even representation of each team or division, or do we need the most deserving players selected? Sure, bring up Canada and Lyons but there's nobody else in DV/DVI that deserves a spot over some of these kids. Same goes with most of DIV, non-Souhegan DIII, and kids from teams like Concord and West. C'mon, BG should have at least five kids in it and Souhegan probably four. Kell, Philips, Kana, Solano, Hall, Flynn, Travaglini, Jellison, Petropulos, Cultera, Cray, it just goes on and on. Is some kid from DVI or a poor DI team really more deserving?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Lyons yes, but no on Canada. Watched him in 5 -6 games in the last two years. I think Brady from Inter-Lakes is better (saw him in 2 games this year.

    ReplyDelete
  69. somebody will always be left off the shrine team. Coaches pick their team based on what they think they will face from the opposition. Vermont has a really good throwing QB for 2010 so DB's & pass rush lineman will be coveted.

    ReplyDelete
  70. If that QB on Vermont is going to Holy Cross he might not be able to play in Shrine Game. His reporting day is probably pretty close to the date of the game.

    ReplyDelete
  71. 3:58 - good point. Will be interesting to see how many first invite players don't accept. Letters need to be back by 2/10 then the re-issues will probably start trickling in for players not intitially selected. First choice players names are starting to come out after the weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  72. The problem is that the "first choice" players aren't always the "best" players. The way the selection process is it limits all teams to two players initially even if there's more that are of Shrine caliber. Then, it requires certain amounts of players per division. Thus, many BG and Souhegan kids are going to miss out due to the screwiness of the system. It's not the best 35 NH has to offer, but rather the 35 that don't go over 2 per team and are evenly spread through all divisions. Stupid. If I were one of the left out studs at BG or Souhegan previousy mentioned I'd be PISSED.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I know who got picked from Souhegan.....

    ReplyDelete
  74. WELL???? Start the process and give us the names.

    ReplyDelete
  75. rosenburg, proulx, cavanaugh are what I heard.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Jellison and Petropulos obviously

    ReplyDelete
  77. Could've called it on Jellison and Petropulos. Just remember, without Cultera and Cray the two of them were absolutely useless against Milford. Those two deserved to make it. They're two of the best linemen in the state and unless they get a late invite New Hampshire will suffer.

    ReplyDelete
  78. 11:19 Agree with you re: 2 lineman.....but really should have been Cray and Jellison....kids with the biggest impact and the best athletes at their positions....

    ReplyDelete
  79. Just about all the D1 and D1aa offers have been givin out and they're almost done with the DII offers. Who from NH have been offered and accepted scholorships?

    ReplyDelete
  80. I don't know, it's real hard to pick among those 4 at Souhegan. I for instance thought Cultera was a bit better on the line after I saw a couple games but the point is that they had 4 players of a high caliber and only two are given the opportunity. What a shame.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Dylan Ryan was selected, obviously coveted because of his pass rushing ability, anybody know about Furey, did he get selected.

    ReplyDelete
  82. when does the actual list come out?

    ReplyDelete
  83. 1st choice players have already been notified an invited to play. Once invitees decide to play or not and their replacement picks go through the invite and return letter process the "final' team is announced. Heard it may be about Feb21.

    ReplyDelete
  84. OK we have:
    Ryan
    Jellison
    Petropulos
    Proulx
    Simpson
    Rosenburg
    Cavanaugh
    Who else?

    ReplyDelete
  85. Heard Montville Portsmouth and Powers Con Val

    ReplyDelete
  86. Heard Hay & McAuliffe from Plymouth

    ReplyDelete
  87. I play for BG and honestly i am not "Pissed" at all that i dont have to spend the end of my senior year practicing for a meaningless shrine bowl with the potential of getting hurt and ruining my hopes to play well in college. Honestly didnt even know there was a shrine game before now so i couldnt care less who wins im plenty happy both with my individual season and the championship. so im glad im left out and im sure im not the only one. i completely respect those who look forward to this because it does have redeeming factors. but im happier sitting outside the limelight on this one

    ReplyDelete
  88. the other kid from BG has no mention anywhere on here? That D linemen who got hurt. Carter? Heard it was an ACL tear im curious how thats going?
    the one injury all players have nightmares about

    ReplyDelete
  89. 10:14 you may or may not have been left out. Your coach nominates players to the shrine coaching staff and then they chose based on their needs. If you knew nothing about the shrine game then obviously your coach didn't nominate you.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Luke Olea from Bishop Brady.

    ReplyDelete
  91. it was carver not Carter. and yeah torn acl. seems to be doing well but won't complain enough to let any of us really know. great guy

    ReplyDelete
  92. almost all the BG starting seniors got nominated
    most told coach not interested or have previous engagements as far as i know

    ReplyDelete
  93. yeah its Carver not Carter but that happens alot dont sweat it. but im told i have been mentioned on here a few times and i appreciate the support but i'd rather everyone just dicuss somebody else honestly its kindof weird
    im not going to put up my medical status online but i will say that rehab is the real nightmare!

    jeremy im lovin the blog good job but how about just a little more puck!?

    ReplyDelete
  94. where is rosenberg going to school?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Due to attitude concerns and lack of playing time this year/injury woes, he's probably best off going for track where he throws the shot in the mid to high 50 foot range. I could see football coaches being hard pressed to risk it, but track is a different story.

  96. Anybody that knows Rosenberg knows he's a loose cannon. Didn't he get booted from a game for physically fighting on the field this year? And I've played him in other sports like basketball and he can plain get out of control, and fast.

  97. That is completely ridiculous. Kevin Rosenberg is hard-working, highly-motivated, and determined in all of his endeavors. There is no "attitude concerns" to be spoken of, and I can say for a fact that he is a highly touted prospect in both football and track. Perhaps you have mistaken his intensity for attitude, but regardless, that is a false accusation. He is widely respected by teammates, coaches, and his peers.

  98. i agree more with 10:31. He crosses the line sometimes and he knows that. His intensity is so high because he puts 100% effort into everything he does and he has passion for what he does. The people who say who has a attitude are the people he has out worked and beaten wether it be on the gridiron,the hardwood, or the disucs or shot put rings.

  104. D3 has no athletic money D2 and D1 one have money to give. The league Sacred Heart is in has up to 40 scholarships and the league Assumption is in has about 19 scholarships. The D2 schools are able to come up with 20k to 30k of athletic and academic combined if the player is really wanted. Probably 80% athletic and the rest academic. The D1 schools give "full boats" which are into the 30k plus range and also give partials which usually range from quarter, half or three quarter of full scholarship. The players that sign earlier are usually the ones that are at the top of a teams "board" and get the most money. Figure it out if someone has been signed between now the first official day 2/3 they are usually wanted by that team and getting pretty good money to go.

  106. Not necessarily on the D1 stuff. From what I've heard Trieb signed without a scholarship whereas Proulx had over three quarters covered. The NEC has 38 scholarships that can be split up whichever way the coaches see fit. Only in D1A is every offer a full ride, but D1AA (Sacred Heart) allows for partials.

    And your numbers on the NE-10 schools are a bit inflated. The conference just went to scholarships this year after always having been need-based in the past. Therefore, with those 19 or so scholarships they have this year (each team minus Bentley will be saving up for the full 36 D2 allows by looking for alumni donations and such) they have to cover their existing two deep of current players as well as some incoming freshman. If you end up with a scholarship offer at all from an Assumption or other NE-10 school this year as a senior you did damn good, but it's value won't be anywhere near 20-30k. Honestly, from what I've heard in the NE-10 this year an offer over 10k is unheard of for incoming freshmen.

  107. Congrats to the Pinkerton kids (Simpson, Proulx, Trieb) and to the Souhegan kids (Cray, Comstock, Daigneau). May you all earn a tremendous education and the opportunity to play the game at the next level. Well Done!

  108. The D2 numbers get you into the twenties including academic if you qualify. They are that high to their "top" recruits if it is the right position which is a skill position or a huge need.
    If you get any money athletically, congrats. It is the same thing as getting paid to do something you love. Who can't appreciate that?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Yes, if you have great grades and SATs. But the football money won't be over 10k trust me. Even "top recruits" won't get over 10k this year in the NE-10.

    Don't forget Wing to Saint A's 10:44 along with Petropulos and Jellison at Amherst. I guess we're just waiting on where Cultera is going now from Souhegan. From what I've been told he has an offer from D2 New Haven and possibly one or two more might've come through in 1AA/D2. And as for Guinto, what's happening with him? I haven't heard anything yet with him. Does he have any options or are schools staying away because of the injuries? Any Pinkerton insiders wanna shed some light?

  110. 9:04, sorry but you are wrong about the money. I know for a fact players were offered over 10K (actually over 15K plus academic money) which totals into the twenties in the NE - 10 this year. Yes NH kids for the record and yes more than one. I have no reason to post this if not true. They were "top" recruits.

  111. From what I have heard about Guinto I think he is going the track route. I am not sure about that but I do know he ended up being one of the fastest kids in the state this year in indoor. He has visited some NE 10 schools for football as well.
    I believe there is at least one more player going to play in college and that is the center, Johnson. Not sure where he is ending up but I think D3 somewhere.
