The Early Preseason Outlook: Endicott Gulls

Endicott Gulls

By Matt Noonan | @MattyNoonz11

We continue our ‘Early Preseason Outlook’ by highlighting the Endicott College Gulls, who commence their 2019 campaign with a visit from Framingham State on Friday, September 6, 2019, at 7 p.m.

The Gulls’ 2018 Season: Endicott returned to its winning ways last fall, finishing one win shy of the 2013 squad with a 7-4 mark. The Gulls qualified for their first-ever New England Bowl and scored some impressive (and exciting wins) against Bridgewater State, Hobart, and Western New England.

The team’s win over the Golden Bears was highlighted by five touchdown passes from quarterback Joe Kalosky, who also finished the game with 88 yards on eight carries.

Despite ending their season with back-to-back losses to Merchant Marine and Salve Regina, the Gulls entered the offseason with some momentum that should carry into this season when they see familiar foes like Framingham State and Western New England.

The 2019 Outlook: The Gulls graduated 15 student-athletes from last year’s squad, including wide receiver Christian Cole, strong safety Christian Pizzotti and linebacker William Rivera, but do return a slew of talent on both sides of the ball with Kalosky, halfback Hakim Fleming, wide receiver Shea McManaway and linebacker Kevin O’Brien.

Additionally, Endicott welcomes back Nick DiCairano, who was our Noontime Sports Special Teamer of the Year. The Trumbull, Connecticut native enjoyed an impressive first season with the Gulls by connecting on 11 of 12 field-goal attempts, including a 45-yard boot in his team’s 52-22 win over Curry College.

Endicott also returns a slew of offensive linemen, including Kha-Lil GoodmanAndrew Tudino and Isaiah Gibbs, which should help the offense find its groove from last season.

Endicott’s Schedule: Endicott begins the season with four-straight home games, including a trio of non-conference clashes with Framingham State, Rochester and Wesley. Additionally, the Gulls will host Becker College at the end of the month before heading to Salve Regina in early October for an important Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) meeting. Weeks after visiting the Seahawks, the Gulls will travel to Husson University and Western New England – both games are must-wins for the Gulls if they want to capture their initial CCC title.

Endicott will end its season with a home date with the University of New England followed by a trip to Dudley, Massachusetts to face Nichols College.

Players to Watch: Joe Kalosky (Quarterback/Plymouth, Conn.), Hakim Fleming (Running Back/Bridgeport, Conn.), Shea McManaway (Wide Receiver/Lisbon, Conn.), Riley Shanley (Tight End/Simsbury, Conn.), Nick DiCairano (Kicker/Trumbull, Conn.), Kevin O’Brien (Linebacker/Braintree, Mass.), Steven Abbott (Defensive Back/Melrose, Mass.), Kha-Lil Goodman (Offensive Line/Bellmore, N.Y.), Andrew Tudino (Orange, Conn.), and Isaiah Gibbs (Offensive Line/Teaneck, N.J.).
