Jack Hennessy ’10 Named Westport News “Athlete Of the Year”

Calling the 3-sport captain “arguably the best male athlete at Staples in the last 10 years,” Westport News sports editor Eliot Schickler anointed the 3-year sweeper Male Athlete of the Year.

The multi-Block “S” winner heads this month to Boston College, where he will compete on the track team.

“Jack is absolutely the real deal,” said Staples head soccer coach Dan Woog.

“As a 3-year starter, as a true leader, as a passionate athlete and as a young man with family values, Jack is a role model for all Staples athletes.”

Jack returned the compliment.

He praised fellow defenders Frankie Bergonzi, Mikey Fitzgerald and Sean Gallagher, plus keeper Michael McCarthy, saying, “Without them, I’m nothing.”

Well done, Jack!

Jack Hennessy — the man, the legend, the Athlete of the Year.
