Clancy's last stand

Newburyport native will take field for last time at Merrimack Saturday


“My goal is to continue playing professionally,” Clancy said. “That’s obviously something that’s not easy. I know that coming from a small school, it’s a bit of a long shot. It’s a goal I take very seriously, and it’s something I’ll put my best effort toward achieving.”

Curran admits that 10 years ago he would have dismissed the notion of a quarterback from Merrimack College earning a chance to play in the NFL. After getting to know Joe Clancy, he’s changed his mind.
