Male Athlete of the Week

The Andover Townsman



The 6-foot-3, 212-pounder led Andover High to a big victory over Rhode Island powerhouse LaSalle Academy, 49-32. Oteri had 10 tackles, two knocked-down passes and one tackle for a loss. On the offensive side of the ball, John has been inserted into the offense and caught a two-point conversion as well as being Jack Sylvester’s lead blocker. Oteri is being recruited by St. Joe’s in Philadelphia for lacrosse and Merrimack, Stonehill, UNH and New Haven for football. Coach E.J. Perry’s comments: “John has been our most consistent defensive player for the last two years and gets the highest marks from our defensive coaches during film sessions. He will be an excellent college athlete.”
