Hollis and Tucker to Continue to Football Careers at College Level

2 more NH players have committed to play college football recently. Laconia High's Raige Hollis will be playing at Stonehill College, while Shannon Tucker from Newfound Regional is headed to WPI.

Hollis (pictured at left) was one of the most feared lineman in the state this past season. He is a big, powerful kid but also has good quickness for a player his size. Hollis helped lead Laconia to the Division IV semi-finals this past fall. He signed a National Letter of Intent to play at Stonehill, which is a Division II school in Massachusetts which plays in the Northeast-10 Conference. Out of the other kids who signed NLO's this year from NH, Hollis is definitely the most underrated player. It's probably because he's a lineman and played in a lower division in high school, but there's no question this kid has talent.

Tucker meanwhile has been one of the top play makers in Division VI football for the last 2 years. He has been a standout on both sides of the ball, both at RB and at DB. Newfound has been one of the better teams in D-VI for the last couple seasons and Tucker is a big reason for that success. It is not often that a kid from D-VI goes on to play football ion college, so he deserves a lot of credit. WPI is a Division III school in Massachusetts which plays in the Liberty League.
