football player is tackled

Lee's Nick Nicotra is taken down by Hoosac Valley's Nolan Roberts. Nicotra has successfully walked on at Boston College, and is wearing No. 38 on the BC roster as a wide receiver.

Lee High School football coach Keith Thomson said the fact that Nick Nicotra is now on a college football team is not a surprise. Nor is it a surprise, to the Lenox High School graduate’s former coach that it is at Boston College.

“I’m not surprised,” Thomson said. “I’ll tell you, the thing about Nick, and I go back to his playing time with us, he’s one of the most versatile kids to come through the program.
