  1. A few members of the WHS Class of ‘76 played 1A and 1AA as it was known then. Mark Roopenian played at BC and professionally with the Buffalo Bills. Orazio Lattanzi was a Boston Globe 1st Team All-Scholastic. Turned down offers from Penn State, South Carolina, and Pittsburgh and made All-Ivy Guard 2 years in a row for Harvard University. He was invited to training camp with the CFL Hamilton Tiger Cats, but chose to pursue a career in Finance instead. Gary Spence and Manny Bougoulas earned football scholarships from Northeastern University. Other WHS players who also played at the next level over the years. Gary Brackett Holy Cross, Andy Pappas Temple Univery, Rich Merrill Captain Northeastern University, Joe Antonellois Harvard University, Don Lalli Captain Boston University. I apologize if I missed some other players. Congratulations to Mason Andrade on his accomplishments. However, WHS has developed many fine college level players, especially during the years that John Barbati was Head Football Coach.

  2. Bobby Cappadona was an all star running back at WHS in the early- mid 60’s. Played at Northeaster and is in their Hall of Fame. Played for the Patriots and Buffalo Bills. Was Patriots Rookie of the Year in 1966. Nice guy. Lives on the Cape.

  3. Let’s not forget Richie Morrill a great WHS graduate who played at Wake for a while. I am surprised he fell through the cracks. How about a shout out to Dickie Fico.
