Massachusetts native Samya Stumo, 24, was a passenger on the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed Sunday, killing all 157 people on board. Stumo grew up in Sheffield and graduated from UMass Amherst in 2015.

I was watching a replay of the 1986 MLB playoffs on the ECL channel. Game 7 in the fourth inning, just after Jim Rice hits a homer, there is a kid sitting in the second row that holds up a UMASS sign. He’s sitting right behind the guy wearing glasses and a green jacket. Waddayouknow!

Story about Will McDonough's boy Terry who attended UMass in the 80s - brief reference to UMass:

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/2641 ... ells-story

Couple of interesting passages:
The police transported McDonough, still 17, to the Plymouth House of Correction, where he was strip-searched and put in a cell. Terry suddenly felt a sense of relief behind bars, he said, "because I didn't want to be in that town anymore." Hingham's golden boy had become its Hester Prynne. Two nights later, the phone rang in the McDonough house, and the man on the other end asked Sister Mary Martina if her brother was home. "It's Jimmy," the nun told Will. James "Whitey" Bulger. According to Will, Whitey told him, "I want to let you know that nobody's going to mess with your kid.
As a UMass student in 1987, he had checked himself out of school and into a hospital after he experienced panic attacks, shortness of breath, muscle twitches and ringing in his ears, and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. The following year, he was arrested over the July Fourth holiday in Atlantic City, New Jersey, after getting drunk, stealing pizza on the boardwalk and wrestling with a cop who had been sitting in an unmarked car. Terry landed in jail for a night before entering a 30-day rehab program in Norwood, Massachusetts.
One anectode - I remember him from an intramural softball game. He was on the team my team was playing against and he was a big time douchebag - yelling at the umps, trash talking our team, etc. One of my teammates was from Hingham, said "He's always been a dick, but I guess that's what happens when you have a famous dad". I asked who his dad was, he replied "Will McDonough".
Word to your motha!

Good to see he's made something of himself and is setting a good example.

I can only imagine if Joe Cullen was the head coach (rumored before Bell) and he hired Terry McDonough. :D
