Xaverian's Coby Tippett '16 started the 2015 season off with a bang, as he helped lead the reigning 2015 D1 State Champions to a 29-7 win over Everett in a rematch of the 2014 D1 Super Bowl.
"We had our eyes on beating Everett from the first day of preseason." Tippett told Mass Prep Stars after the game. "All the hard work we put in paid off tonight."
Tippett, a 2015 Mass Prep Stars/First String Performance Pre-Season Super Team All-Defensive player, returned a 93-yard kickoff to the house and added two key interceptions, as Xaverian (1-0) controlled the Crimson Tide all evening long.
"Our defense did so well in keeping Everett off the scoreboard." Tippett added. "That is the key thing when playing top teams like Everett."
With new players stepping up for the Hawks this season, Tippett is excited for the season and achieving an individual goal of playing college football. The star athlete has seen his recruitment pick up, as he told Mass Prep Stars after the game.
"I have been looking at UConn, UMass and Delaware," Tippett said. "I also went to UMass's camp this summer and I was impressed."
