Brian W. McNally

Class of 1972

A three year, three sport varsity star, Brian was a great athlete and leader at CCHS. He was the starting quarterback and safety for three years and was named to a coveted position in the Harry Agganis All-Star game where his All Star teammates chose him as their Captain.

One of Brian's greatest plays came after his own punt was blocked and picked up by a Watertown player late in the game. To everyone's amazement, he fought off five blockers and made a touchdown-saving tackle on the ten yard line to preserve a 14-12 victory.

Brian was also a three year varsity starter in basketball and baseball, where he received additional All-Star recognition and was voted Captain by his basketball (junior & senior years) and baseball teammates. Brian was elected to the National Honor Society in both his junior and senior years, and was presented with the prestigious John F. Donovan Memorial Flag award at graduation.

After graduating from CCHS in 1972, Brian was a two year starter, Captain (naturallyl), team MVP, Scholar-Athlete of the Year, and All-Yankee Conference quarterback at UMass. As a Senior he set two New England single game pass completion (32) and yardage (389) records which stood for five years until Doug Flutie came along.

Brian now lives in Sudbury with his wife and former CCHS classmate, Sharon (Walsh) and their three children Brooke(12), Geoffrey (9), and Dana (7).
