FHS Noviello, Leonard, Driscoll recognized for Hockomock Football Awards

HockomockSports has published the 2017 Hockomock League Football Awards. The FHS student athletes selected are shown here. Links to the complete listing are also provided.


Jake Noviello – Franklin – Senior
Franklin senior quarterback Jake Noviello put together a strong senior season, leading the Hockomock League in touchdown passes this fall. Noviello, who has one of the strongest arms in the league, completed 171-of-342 passes for 2,173 yards (more than 250 yards per game in the league) and 18 touchdowns for the Panthers. He also ran for a pair of scores and converted a pair of two-point conversions. Franklin coach Eian Bain said of Noviello, who is committed to Fairfield University for baseball, “We put the entire offense in his control, from pass protection to audibles at the line of scrimmage. Jake has the physical tools to make every throw.”


Sean Leonard – Franklin – Junior
Franklin junior Sean Leonard emerged as Jake Noviello’s favorite target and a big-play receiver in the Panthers downfield passing attack in his second year as a starter. Leonard led the Hockomock League with eight touchdown receptions. He finished with 36 catches for 561 yards this season and also added a two-point conversion. Franklin coach Eian Bain is excited about Leonard’s potential for next season. Bain said, “He makes defenses have to account for the middle of the field, plays multiple spots, is deceptively fast, and it a tenacious blocker. He became Jake’s favorite target in any tight spot, and made many memorable catches.”


Ryan Driscoll – Franklin – Junior
Franklin junior defensive back Ryan Driscoll built on a strong sophomore campaign to become one of the top cover guys in the Hockomock League, while also chipping in at wide receiver as well. Driscoll had an injury-shortened season but still made 35 tackles (two for loss), broke up four passes, and had one interception. He also caught 23 passes for 539 yards and four touchdowns. Franklin coach Eian Bain said of Driscoll, “The most explosive athlete on our team, Ryan usually drew the assignment of covering the opponents best receiver. Ryan also was one of our leading tacklers before injury cut short his 2017 season.”
