Roger Brown's First and 10: CHaD event good practice for frosh 'Cats
Kennedy and Portsmouth defensive lineman Rick Holt have each signed a national letter of intent and will play football for UNH. Each player was picked to play in the CHaD East-West All-Star Game, which will be held at UNH on Saturday, June 29. Kennedy will play for the West, and Holt will represent the East.
Kennedy and Holt have also each accepted an invitation to play in the Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl, which will be held at Dartmouth College in August. Both all-star games raise money for charity.
WEST head coach Jim Schubert said Goffstown's Connor Benjamin will be used as a running back. Benjamin was Goffstown's starting quarterback during his junior and senior seasons.
Benjamin rushed for 1,660 yards and 24 touchdowns, and passed for 1,342 yards and 15 TDs last season. His best game may have been in the Division III semifinals, when he rushed for a touchdown and the two-point conversion in overtime to give fourth-seeded Goffstown a 54-53 triumph over top-seeded Souhegan.
EXETER'S Logan Laurent would appear to give the East an edge in the kicking game. Laurent, who will punt as well as handle the placekicking duties, received a scholarship to kick at the University of Massachusettts.
SCHUBERT coached Central to six state championships and guided New Hampshire to a Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl victory in 2006. Camirand was Concord's head coach when the Crimson Tide won the Division I title in 2000. He was also an assistant coach for three teams that won the Division I championship: Salem (1983), Concord (1987) and Concord (1989). … Milford's Keith Jones coached the West to a 44-12 victory in last year's game. … Twenty-two players on the CHaD rosters were also picked to represent New Hampshire in this summer's Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl. ... Wilson provided this year's game shirts. … Nashua South quarterback/defensive back Trevor Knight, a junior who is a likely candidate to play in next year's CHaD game, received a scholarship offer from Albany this week. He also has offers from UNH and UMass.
