FITCHBURG, Mass. – The Sacred Heart football team's senior tight end duo of Ed Cuddahy and Del Driscoll were featured over the weekend in a piece titled 'Leominster's Cuddahy, Townsend's Driscoll are stronger together' written by Matt Stewart for the Sentinel & Enterprise based in Massachusetts. Fans can click on the link above to read the piece focusing on the two Massachusetts natives who figure to play a big role on offense in 2019.
Cuddahy and Driscoll first came on as freshmen at SHU in 2016 after growing up less than 30 minutes from one another in Leominster (Cuddahy) and Townsend (Driscoll).
Cuddahy started his SHU career as an offensive lineman and has since transitioned into the team's primary starting tight end. He led all tight ends on the roster with 10 catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns last season.
Driscoll saw his first season of extended playing time in 2018 and was used primarily as a blocking tight end. He added two catches for 17 yards on the season while appearing in all 11 games. The two were used together on some packages and helped lead the top-ranked rushing offense in the NEC as the Pioneers averaged 241.1 yards per game on the ground last season.
The 2019 campaign kicks off next Friday as the Pioneers head on the road to take on No. 7 nationally-ranked Maine at the Harold Alfond Sports Stadium for a 6 PM start.
