Being from Waltham (mass.) along with Pete and a couple other writers, I find it pretty interesting to hear about how former athletes are doing including the likes of Mackenzy Bernadeau (guard for the Dallas Cowboys and a 2003 WHS graduate) and members of our hometown Boston Cannons Steve Duffy (head coach) and Jon Hayes (midfielder and 2004 WHS graduate). It is always interesting when you hear about the college athletes.
Danny Maynes was a 2009 graduate of Waltham High and is currently a redshirt sophomore defensive lineman playing for Umass Amherst. Danny got a little surprise recently when a couple of police officers interrupted coach Charley Molnar’s team meeting. The officers said they were there to serve Danny and junior Rob O’Connor with papers. It came to everyones surprise when coach Molnar put up the next slide on the powerpoint presentation stating “Coach Molnar is awarding you a full- athletic scholarship for the 2012-2013 academic calendar year for your hard work and team dedication on and off the field”. The team was only able to see this but Danny and Rob were filled in on the huge surprise seconds later after reading the letter. Elated they hugged their coach and celebrated with the team.
The whole thing was recorded on video and posted on youtube.
Congrats to Danny and Rob, keep up the hard work.

It is difficult to find trends of success through 6 games from this Cowboys' offense. In week 1, they did many things very well and looked balanced and competent. Since then, the Garrett-Romo offense has been anything but consistent, with a horrendous performance in Seattle, near absence against Tampa Bay, a turnover machine versus Chicago, and then a power-running team against...
Tony Romo has faced his fair share of critics during his time in the NFL, and most of them are very valid. Romo’s numbers have been very sub-par at multiple times in his career. He has a cannon for an arm and always can sling it to his wide-out. But it’s those pesky turnovers that get him in trouble. And it’s not just a few turnovers; Its constant.
His career got off to...
