Calvin Boudreau’s debut to his senior campaign was most impressive. The Boston Herald named Boudreau, a three-year starting QB, as one of its “Stars of the Week.”
“Calvin had a great night,” said Coach Cicatelli. “He showed really good presence in the pocket and excellent mobility. He’s played for this team since he was a freshman and he gotten better every year and this is his year. I remember when I was taller than Calvin (who is now 6-foot-3).”
Boudreau certainly deserves the title as “all-around athlete,” He is a captain of the football and basketball teams, having just completed his final season for Coach David O’Leary contingent. He will reportedly play baseball for the Patriots later this spring.
His talent on the football field has been recognizable since his earliest years in the Revere Junior Patriots Pop Warner organization.
Doucette Brothers Make a Statement on the Line
The Doucette brothers, senior captain and offensive guard Ryan Doucette, and sophomore center Max Doucette, kept the Classical defense away from Boudreau and gave running backs Ginepra and Atitebi some running room. Max was making his varsity debut for the Patriots.
“Our whole offensive line – they got great push up front,” said Cicatelli.
Also drawing praising from the head coach were Josimar Martinez, Alaa Atoui, and tight ends Dillon Day and Jarrod Natola.
Keefe and Boudreau a Winning Team on TV
Ward 4 Councillor Patrick Keefe and Donald Boudreau, father of star quarterback Calvin Boudreau, did a great job in the play-by-play and analyst roles on the Revere TV broadcast.
The duo will be in the press box Friday night at Della Russo Stadium for the home opener. It is believed that Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky will be in his familiar position as the official timekeeper for the game.
Cerbone Sustains Season-Ending Injury
Marco Cerbone, a safety and running back who was off to a great start in the game, sustained a season-ending leg injury in the second quarter. Cerbone had a superb run that showcased his speed and athleticism and the 5-foot-8-inch senior also came close to blocking a punt earlier in the game.
“That’s a big loss for us,” said Coach Cicatelli. “He’s a good player, but more importantly he’s a great person. The guys were down about Marco’s injury. Marco had surgery on his leg and he’s out of the hospital and he’s going to be fine.”
