One of the great clutch players in Acton Boxboro history, Mike will always be remembered for his two free throws capping a stunning 14 point comeback with two minutes left against Ipswich at the Boston Garden in the 1970 Tech Tourney Final. AB went on to win the game in overtime. Winning was not unusual for teams that Mike played for. His fierce competitive fires were belied by his quiet demeanor. His hoop prowess was displayed with intense defense, rugged rebounding and the ability to rise on offense when the game was on the line.
Mike's scoring and rebounding averages were both over fourteen points. What could not be measured were his floor burns, boxouts and lethal elbows. As a halfback for the Football Colonials, Mike earned All League Honors his senior year. He gained well over 1000 yards in his career at AB and was an excellent receiver. He was an even better linebacker! His ringing hits were commonplace. His finest game was the 1970 6-0 upset of Wayland where he scored the only touchdown and ravaged the Warrior offense. Mike was Captain of the 1970 Football Team and led by example in a Sargeant York manner. Mike was selected as a D.C.L. All Star in football as a senior and for basketball his junior and senior year. Mike went on to attend Boston University. Mike is a building contractor and now lives in West Stockbridge with his wife Susan and their son Matthew.
