Winchendon Duo Earns Scholarships
The Winchendon School has been revitalized this year under second year head coach Kevin Kehoe, not just returning to class AA of the NEPSAC and winning games but also producing scholarship talent.
The most recent examples came this week when a pair of post-graduates accepted full athletic scholarships.
First was Sam Towns, a 6-foot-9 forward from Ohio who had become the team's most recruited prospect this year, accumulating numerous division I offers. With his choice of destinations, Towns elected to head back home and pledge to Ohio head coach Jeff Boals.
Towns is highly skilled for his size, particularly with his ability to shoot off the dribble, and has plenty of untapped potential as he continues to build-up his wiry build. So far this season he's averaging 18.8 points and 8.9 rebounds while shooting 47.7% from the field and 44.1% from behind the arc.
On Friday, it was Darragh OSullivan who announced his committed to division II Florida Tech. O'Sullivan is a native of Ireland who starred for their national team this summer.
His game is mature beyond his years as he is not only skilled but also offensively versatile and very smart with his decision-making and overall basketball IQ. He's averaged over 10 points, 4 assists, and 4 rebounds for the Big Green so far this year.
