Athy, A Falcon co-captain and candidate for Google Cloud Academic All-America honors, spent most of his career as a safety before shifting to linebacker midseason.  He was fifth on the team in tackles (46) and also had an interception and a forced fumble.

Junior running back added Dylan Ibbitson 120 rushing yards as Holliston (9-1, 5-0 TVL) rushed for 275 yards and held Westwood to only 35 total yards.

“This is a somewhat small (senior) group but they brought a lot to the table, led by Will Crowley and Scott Elliott, our two captains,” Kiley said. “Just outstanding leaders and took this team and put them on their back and we were able to do what we did this year. We had one little bump in the road against Scituate. Other than that we had a fantastic season.

“Looks good for next year,” Kiley added. “We have 14 returning starting positions. We’re excited for that as well but extremely happy for these seniors and the legacy they left.”
