Souhegan lineman Jake Kennedy picked up his first Division I offer recently, as the University of Massachusetts offered a scholarship to the 6'4", 280 lbs. tackle. who plays on both the offensive and defensive line for the Sabers. This past fall he was a Division III first team all-state player.
In 2012 UMass will begin play in the Mid-American Conference (MAC) in the FBS as they are leaving the FCS and their former conference the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA). Hopefully this will be the first of many scholarship offers for Kennedy, who has 3.3 GPA and also plays basketball at Souhegan.
