Wes Football Players Featured in Boston Globe

Lane Kirshe ’10 (right) and Dan Hulyk ’11 (below) were featured in a Boston Globe article about promising collegiate athletes in New England:

Junior Lane Kirshe of Franklin, a two-way threat in the offensive backfield, is competing for a starting role with the Wesleyan University football team…

“Lane played quite a bit for us as the season progressed last year, and he wound up splitting starting time at tailback. He really looked good on a couple of screen passes and he’s a solid blocker with no holes in his game,” said Wesleyan coach Frank Hauser.

Kirshe’s teammates include sophomore Dan Hulyk, a linebacker and former Milford High captain who played offensive and defensive line and linebacker in high school.

“Dan’s a tough kid who worked hard and went through a learning experience as a freshman,” Hauser said. “We’re looking for him to step up because he showed a good run to the football at inside linebacker and he’s adapting to pass coverages.”
