Former Naugatuck gridder wraps up prep season in Maine


CONTRIBUTED Michael Kennedy looks to make a tackle for Maine’s Bridgton Academy.

Michael Kennedy of Naugatuck was a member of the Bridgton Academy football team this season. Bridgton Academy is a unique, all male, post graduate, boarding school in North Bridgton, ME where student athletes such as Kennedy are able to spend a year improving in the classroom as well as on the playing field. It also gives student athletes an additional year of exposure to college coaches at a much higher level of competition.
The Wolverines faced some tough opponents such as Navy Prep and Brown University’s J.V. squad this season. However, Kennedy and the rest of the team never gave up and ended their season with a winning record of 6-4.
