Area Prospect Continues Fine Junior Season

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a look at the season of junior football player Kenneth Coughlin, who continues to help his team win games ... the most recent one coming in the playoffs ...

Kenneth Coughlin, a 5-10 1/2 linebacker/tight end from Tottenville High School in Staten Island, New York, produced five tackles and one sack, helping his team win its 10th straight game without a loss this season.

Tottenville advanced to this Saturday's quarterfinals.

Kenneth also forced a fumble, recovered a fumble and all of this came in one half of football.

SO FAR THIS SEASON:

Coughlin recorded six tackles, two for losses and added two sacks two weeks ago.

Previously, we reported that Coughlin recorded a couple of sacks, several tackles and had a couple of quarterback pressures to help his team land a 41-13 victory.

RECRUITING INTEREST:

The 220-pounder, a member of the 2012 class and a junior, previously took an unofficial campus visit to North Carolina State. In addition, Delaware, Western Kentucky, and Duquesne have shown some recruiting interest along with Wagner, Memphis, and East Carolina.

DESCRIPTION OF COUGHLIN'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

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.
