Before all the accolades and Division 1 college interest, Lincoln Beal admits there were plenty of nerves two years ago, when the then-freshman found himself as one of the top running backs for the Andover High varsity team.

We're always interested in hearing about news in our community. Let us know what's going on!

ANDOVER — It was obvious to anybody watching Andover High football play last year that then-sophomores quarterback Scotty Brown and running back Lincoln Beal were on the verge of becoming very special.

Before we fully turn the page to the fall season, lets take one final look back at some of the biggest stars from the spring season. Here are some of the top standouts, listed by the class they were in prior to 2021 graduation:

ANDOVER — The sophomores scored almost all of the points, but it was the seniors who ruled the day Thursday afternoon for the Andover High football team.


It may not have been Thanksgiving Day, but it felt like it could have been the traditional Turkey Day gridiron matchup between rivals Andover High and North Andover. 

Andover's Michael Makiej wasted no time making history in his college basketball career.


Andover’s Tomas Loureiro crept up towards the line of scrimmage as the opposing QB called out signals. The second the ball was snapped, the linebacker threw a blocker aside, lowered his shoulder and delivered a crushing hit to the running back, jarring the ball free and pouncing on the fumble.

HAVERHILL — After watching the hosts open the game with a long drive and its first touchdown of the Fall 2 season, Andover rebounded to claim a convincing 23-7 victory over Haverhill on Friday.
