Recruiting Roundup: Catholic Memorial

May 17, 2024

There were some things to like for Catholic Memorial in 2023. The Knights scored a big, conference win over Xaverian on the last play of the game in one of the more exciting contests of the season. But then, there were also some lowlights. In the second game of the season at Cardinal Newman of Florida, several Knights suffered serious injuries. In the postseason, CM lost to Marshfield, and fell……


St. John’s Prep 19, Catholic Memorial 8 — Line play carries Eagles

October 21, 2023

DANVERS — Maybe the most impactful players in St. John’s Prep’s 19-8 win over Catholic Memorial Saturday were, at times, all but hidden performers.

With a strong offensive performance, CM beat St. Francis (NY) Saturday, 50-36. The Knights both ran and threw it well, and head into a bye week with……


CM 41, Mansfield 14 – Mekhi Dodd, Knights cruise past Hornets

September 7, 2023

WEST ROXBURY — A year ago, Catholic Memorial running back Mekhi Dodd was not the team’s primary ballcarrier. That designation belonged to Datrell Jones and Carson Harwood. But, now, Jones has moved on to Boston College, and Harwood is at the University of Rhode Island. There is no one left for Dodd to bide his time and wait behind. That’s a good thing for Catholic Memorial, and a bad thing……
