That's too bad about Brian Manderville. I am sure he can do something else with all his talent. All the Best to ya, Brian.

Was Zocco recruited by Umass??

One wonders why Northeastern failed to detect something as potentially life-threatening as a valve problem; I'm assuming all players undergo extensive physicals? Regard this as a blessing; there's much Mr. Mandeville can do with his life; and if he hadn't attended the combines?

No idea if Zocco was recruited by anyone other than URI. No other information on him. He's got great size for a RB or safety (6'2" 195 lbs)
