Gridiron Flashback

In honor of all the fall football stars just waiting for their chance to pound the turf at Veterans Memorial Stadium, during the 2020-2021 Everett High School fall sports season, we are showcasing snap shots of newspaper clips from the past, each including some of the biggest names and games in EHS football history.

1993

This week’s Flashback is a tiny break from the usual as we are featuring an Everett resident that actually graduated from Malden Catholic, big man Anthony DiNuccio. Back In 1993, he was picked up and added to the Bridgewater State roster on the heels of one of their best seasons on record. DiNuccio has actively been on the Everett Police force for over 20 years, so if you see him out there let him know he’s our Gridiron Flashback.

Our very first Gridiron Flashback of the year takes us into the time vault and back to 1996, when speedy receiver Michael Denning bolted past rival Malden HS defenders in a 37-0 shutout by the Tide. Everett finished the 96’ season with its 11th Greater Boston League title and first Super Bowl appearance in 24 years. (Leader Herald photo)

Theluxon Pierre, Everett High School alumni and head football coach for the last two seasons, was relieved of his position with the team and his assistant Gregory Bluestein has been appointed interim head coach for the remainder of the 2020-2021 football season.

The shakeup was not due to Pierre’s coaching performance but a result of his lack of teaching credentials required at

Everett Public Schools. Bluestein, who has a Master of Education degree in Athletic Administration, has been teaching at the school for the last eight years.

With EHS now set to have its third head coach in four seasons, the question becomes could this be the year the Crimson Tide’s current slows down?

The Crimson Tide ended their season not in the way they started – and that’s a good thing.

On Thanksgiving morning, Masconomet Regional came into town and was handed a plate full of Crimson as the Tide rolled to a 41-7 win. The meeting, their fourth straight T-Day matchup, has been one-sided, with Everett taking all four games in convincing fashion (including 32-0 win last year).

And after suffering a disheartening loss to open the year, second- year head coach Theluxon Pierre is able to say his team bounced back and completed a winning season, albeit without a super bowl title, the right way.

“To be honest, I’m very proud of the kids, but growing up in Everett, this is a disappointing season,” Pierre said, noting the referee mishaps that marred another successful year on the field of play. Two years in a row controversial calls in the playoffs helped to bounce the Tide (8-3) from another run at the super bowl.

In his second year as head coach, Pierre now owns an overall record of 18-4, including two conference championships.
