Kenneth Coughlin, a 5-10 1/2 linebacker/tight end from Tottenville High School in Staten Island, New York, had nine tackles to help his football team produce a convincing 33-6 victory in the quarterfinals.

Tottenville will challenge Fort Hamilton of Brooklyn in the semifinals. Both teams are 11-0 so far this season.

In addition to his nine tackles, he recorded a sack and two quarterback pressures that led to two inceptions.


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.


The 220-pounder, a member of the 2012 class and a junior, previously took an unofficial campus visit to North Carolina State. Delaware, Western Kentucky, Duquesne, Wagner, Memphis, and East Carolina have been mentioned in his recruiting process.


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.
