Underclassman Hopeful For Next Season

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a look at the individual game and junior season of football underclassman Kenneth Coughlin ...

Kenneth Coughlin, a 5-10 1/2 linebacker/tight end from Tottenville High School in Staten Island, New York, saw his season end in a PSAL semifinal playoff loss to Fort Hamilton.

We previously reported that Coughlin was one of the main reasons why his team advanced this far. He produced nine tackles to help his football team score a convincing 33-6 victory in the quarterfinals.

Tottenville finished 11-1.

In addition to his nine tackles in the quarterfinal playoff game, 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, 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.
