"In May, Endicott senior defensive tackle Craig Anderson became the fifth recipient of the Jack Daly Award for Academics, Citizenship and Football. The award was presented to Anderson by the Eastern Mass. Chapter of the National Football Foundation to honor his outstanding play on the gridiron, in the classroom, and in the community.
It was the last part that really struck home for Anderson, a Franklin High alum.
Speaking the day before Endicott opened its 2016 season against Framingham State, he explained, “I always, when I can, try to give back to the community because there’s always people less fortunate than you. When the coaches talk about different community service opportunities, I try to get involved in as many as I can.”
Anderson began volunteering and developed his passion for community service in the peer leadership group at Franklin High.
