Two Students Sign College Football NLI

Two Students Sign College Football NLI

Congratulations to Varsity Football Seniors Cam Boes '19 and Joey Howshan '19, who signed National Letters of Intent (NLI) to play college football with Stonehill College and Bentley University respectively.

Boes, who was Boston Globe All-Scholastic Fall 2018, and Howshan, a Boston Herald All-Scholastic Fall 2018, were stand out players all four years at Central Catholic and were both named to the MVC 1st Team All-Conference Team.

“This is a great reward for the hard work they’ve put in for four years in the classroom and on the field,” said Head Varsity Football Coach Chuck Adamopolous. “They are two great representatives of the football program and Central Catholic as a whole.”

Congratulations and good luck to Cam and Joey! You bring great pride to Raider Nation!
