Area Underclassman Planning Trips

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a look at the individual game and season for football player Kenneth Coughlin, who competes at a high school located on Staten Island ...

Kenneth Coughlin, a 5-10 1/2 linebacker/tight end from Tottenville High School in Staten Island, New York, has helped his team surge to a 6-0 record so far this season.

The 220-pounder, a member of the 2012 class and a junior, previously took a visit to North Carolina State and came away very impressed. In addition, Western Kentucky and Duquesne have shown previous interest.

Kenneth's family told us that a trip to Delaware is also a possibility. Previously, we reported that Wagner, Memphis, and East Carolina had expressed some early interest.


Kenneth's first game featured six tackles and two forced fumbles. The starting defense only played the first quarters in game number two.

Also, considered a multiple position player, Coughlin is also the long snapper for Tottenville. He was named to second team All City defense as a defensive tackle last season while also spending some minutes playing the defensive end and linebacker positions.

He currenty holds a 3.2 grade point average as well.
