Class of 1991
A football and lacrosse standout who was a lacrosse All-American and Dual County League all-star in both sports, Brad Glowaki went on to become a two-time All-Conference standout in lacrosse at the University Delaware.
Born in Illinois, Glowaki and his family moved to Wilton, Connecticut when he was young before relocating to Concord in 1989, just prior to Glowaki’s junior year. Born in to an athletics family, older brother Chris was a college football player at Southern Illinois while younger brother, Nate '94, himself a two-sport star at CCHS, later followed Brad to Delaware where he also played lacrosse.
A shifty and elusive athlete, Glowaki made an immediate impact in football under Hall of Fame coach Al Robichaud, playing QB, WR, DB and as a special teams standout. As a senior captain, Glowaki amassed 500 yards rushing, 700 yards passing and 600 yards receiving and was honored as a Dual County League All-Star.
Amazingly, Glowaki had played baseball in Connecticut, but elected to give lacrosse a try in Concord and never looked back. The shifty southpaw was the X-factor on some very good teams under head coach Dick Kerr, and as a junior helped the team all the way to the state finals against rival Longmeadow while scoring 50 goals and adding 35 assists. Glowaki was honored as a DCL and Eastern Massachusetts All-Star.
Glowaki went one better as a senior, leading the state and setting a then-Massachusetts record with 131 points (61 goals, 70 assists) as the Patriots bowed to Lincoln-Sudbury in a heartbreaking one-goal loss in the Eastern Massachusetts Championship game. For his effort, Glowaki was named All-American, DCL MVP, DCL All-Star, Boston Globe and Boston Herald All-Scholastic and was MVP of the Massachusetts Senior All-Star game.
His accomplishments earned Glowaki a scholarship to the University of Delaware, where he was a three-year starter for the Fightin’ Blue Hens. A two-time All-North Atlantic Conference selection, Glowaki graduated with career totals of 87 goals and 32 assists, and led the NCAA in goals per game as senior with 40 in 14 games.
“I have so many great memories of my time in Concord, which was impactful in spite of playing just two years at CCHS,” said Glowaki. “My overwhelming memory is of teammates and friends welcomed me right away, and we were part of continuing the great lacrosse tradition. Our win in the EMass championship game over Weymouth in 1990 was a real highlight, but more than anything the friends and teammates I was fortunate to play alongside are what I took with me from my great years at CCHS.”.
Glowaki married CCHS classmate Jessica Orpik, and they currently reside in Seal Beach, CA with children Georgia, Luke, Saylor and Hero. Brad is the founder and owner of Champion Chiropractic, and travels the world lecturing and teaching on the art of Chiropractic care.
