Amesbury resident Bob Comeau played under Sheridan at Salem High in 1962 and 1963. The fullback remembers Sheridan leading his team to an 8-1 record in Class A during his senior year.
"He was very well organized," Comeau said. "He did everything by the book. Before games, he gave very inspirational speeches. He just had a way with kids. When you think of his impact on football in this area, he's going to be remembered for a long time."
