RADIO: Quabbin Football, Doherty Legend Alfred Adakwah and More!

By Joe Parello (@HerewegoJoe)

It was a bittersweet final episode of "The Local Sports Lunchbox" on WPKZ this week.

It was my final show as host, but I did get to welcome in Sean Sweeney to the studio as a co-host. Mr. Sweeney will take over the time slot, alongside legendary Clinton basketball coach Tony Gannon starting next week, and I know they are going to kill it.

For my final show, we first chatted with Quabbin football coach David Buchanan. His team returns a ton of offensive firepower, including record-setting quarterback Ryan Malkowski. Hear what the Panthers need to do to take the next step.

Then, Doherty football legend Alfred Adarkwah called in to discuss his brand new scholarship to play football at UMass. Adarkwah walked on for the Minutemen three years ago, and his hard work finally paid off, as he was awarded a scholarship just last night.

Finally, Sean and I break down the blockbuster Celtics-Cavaliers trade, and the legendary Dick Tucker makes a surprise call in. All that, and more, in this week's episode below.
