Masconomet eyeing another league title

(Continued)

Junior Corey Tines, who caught 14 passes and four touchdowns as a sophomore, returns at wide receiver alongside seniors Harry Cwik, Sam Antczak and Drew Steinberg, as well as senior tight end Nolan Rice.

Up front, there’s an excellent mix of seniors and juniors whose bulk doesn’t hurt their athleticism. Seniors Kevin Zegel (6-5, 240 lbs.) and guard Will Lawrence join juniors such as Steve O’Reilly (240 lbs.), Jack Butt (240 lbs.), Kyle Taggart (250 lbs.), Louis Saladino (200 lbs.) and Mike Pascuccio to give the Chieftains plenty of fresh bodies to rotate in.

The only question mark would be at quarterback, where senior Troy Bunker (a converted wide receiver who also kicks off and attempts extra points) and junior Roby Deschenes (the grandson of former Beverly High legend Robbie Robinson) are vying for the starter’s job.

On defense, senior Logan Thompson and Monagle will rotate between outside linebacker and safety, showing their versatility. Senior David Drigo is another outside linebacker, with fellow senior Mike MacKay and O’Reilly manning the inside spots. Pascuccio, Zegel, Taggart, Butt, Austin Cashin and seniors Mike Gallagher and Ben Rosenbaum will all see time on the defensive line, along with newcomers Kyle Kowalski (a junior) and Jalen Aho (a senior). Cwik, Bunker, Tines, Monagle, Thompson and Tivinis will patrol the defensive backfield.
