Lackawanna’s Robert Kennedy gets 3 more Division I offers

Jeannette’s Robert Kennedy celebrates his first touchdown in the second quarter of the PIAA Class A state championship game against Homer-Center Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017, at Hersheypark Stadium.

Robert Kennedy knew there were no guarantees when he took the junior college route.

The former Jeannette star quarterback and defensive back — Mr. PA Football for small schools in 2018 — decided to play at Lackawanna. The plan was to be patient, work on his game, get stronger physically and mentally, with this end game: remind Division I programs of his presence.

So far, so good.

Kennedy, in his second year at Lackawanna in Scranton, has pulled in three more D-I scholarship offers.

FBS Massachusetts, along with St. Francis (Pa.) and Sacred Heart, both FCS programs, came calling this week after Kennedy showed his defensive skills in the Falcons’ 83-0 win over Erie Community College.

He also has offers from Albany, Duquesne and Robert Morris.

Kennedy, 5-foot-10, 185-pound sophomore defensive back, is averaging four tackles a game and has two forced fumbles and two sacks for Lackawanna (4-0).

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
