Beverly football team commemorates undefeated season with Super Bowl rings

BEVERLY— The Beverly High football team got to relive their Division 2A Super Bowl championship game at Gillette Stadium and perfect 13-0 season once again last night, after receiving their Super Bowl rings from head coach Dan Bauer.

Though their season ended more than four months ago, the team was able reminisce about the unforgettable moments and gather together a final time before the seniors graduate in a few weeks.

“It’s really awesome to just be back with the guys, that’s what we’re all about,” said senior captain Marc Babcock. “It’s great that we’re getting the rings, but it’s even better to get together with the team again. This is a high point that we can all go out on as a team, especially the seniors.”

The team and their families filled the seats of the high school’s auditorium for a glimpse of the special highlight video of the season and a proclamation by City Councilor Wes Slate before the rings, which have an orange “B” flanked by “State Champions” on the top, were handed out.

“We haven’t been with each other for a while, so it’s nice to end it on a good note,” said fellow senior captain Brendan Flaherty. “It’s great to be able to go out your senior year with a ring, especially with the guys you’ve played with since second grade. It’s nice to be able to reunite with the guys, not just with the seniors. but with the rest of the community and reflect on the season.”

Each player received a their Super Bowl rings, commemorating the 28-21 victory over Natick in early December, too add to several other items of memorabilia they have to remember the season by.

Babcock and Flaherty along with the other senior captains, Dave Rollins, Kenny Pierce and Dom Abate, who all dawned their 2010 rings, had the opportunity to design this year’s rings.
