Again, process over product.

Of course, making a NFL roster is the goal, but if it doesn’t happen, there are other options like the Canadian Football League or the Arena Football League. The CFL draft will follow the NFL’s.

“There are so many good football players out there, but there is not enough room in the NFL,” Clancy said. “It’s an exclusive group. But if you do well enough, they’ll find you.”

Notebook: Newbury’s Latham named captain at Wisconsin

Junior Deanna Latham (Newbury), a track and field standout we featured in these pages last week, was named captain of the University of Wisconsin track and field team last week … Latham’s former teammate, Taelour Murphy (Salisbury), a junior at UMass Lowell, won the 200 meters (24.33) and placed second in the 60 meter dash (7.65) at the Boston University Multi-Meet last weekend.

Gabrielle Sergi (Newburyport), a senior swimmer at Bates College, achieved a pair of season-bests in dual meets against Bowdoin and Colby last week. Sergi clocked in at 24.47 for the 50 meter freestyle in a 168-130 win over Bowdoin and 54.07 to place first in the 100 freestyle in a 203-90 win over Colby. With the wins, Bates captured the CBB (Colby-Bates-Bowdoin) championship.

Senior Erin McNamara (West Newbury) scored 20 points in Southern Maine’s 75-64 loss at Eastern Connecticut Jan. 18 … Shawn Kavanaugh (Georgetown) a sophomore on the Bridgewater State wrestling team, is second on the team in takedowns with six. Kavanaugh went 3-1 last weekend at the College of Mt. St. Vincent Open, advancing to the final in the 184-pound class.
