We’ll try to warm things up (and make it feel like Miami this morning, which is currently 70 degrees) with our first ‘Daily Noontime’ on a Monday.

As usual, have a great day, smile, and make sure to be careful while walking and driving today!

By Matt Noonan (@MattNoonan11) 

In case you missed it, Endicott College football made an appearance on ESPN‘s SportsCenter AM today – Sunday, September 10th – to discuss their dramatic and exciting 29-28 win over Bridgewater State.

Following a quick recap of the game-winning drive, Endicott coach Kevin DeWall and quarterback Joe Kalsoky joined the SportsCenter AM crew to discuss how the Gulls engineered an improbable comeback with less than a minute remaining.

After appearing on SportsCenter AM, Kalosky was named this week’s Commonwealth Coast Football (CCC) Offensive Player of the Week for tossing a career-best four touchdowns, including the game-winning score.

Endicott’s game-winning score also gained attention from other media outlets, including NESN, the Salem News and Saturday Down South.

The Gulls return to action next Saturday, September 16 when they visit MIT for a 1:00 p.m. kick-off.
