Big Ben won't break

Amesbury back will shoulder heavy load

(Continued)

Perhaps sensing that he may be due for an increased role this season, Cullen said he stepped up his offseason conditioning. The three-sport athlete (track, baseball) is stronger and faster than last season.

“I did get stronger,” Cullen said. “I trained a lot more in the offseason to get ready for this season. I was smarter about running. I’m ready to go.”

Cullen’s 2012 campaign

Ben Cullen was one of three Amesbury players to rush for over 350 yards last fall, along with 2012 graduates Matt Talbot and Perry Mroz. Here are Cullen’s stats.

Carries 68

Yards 370

Rushing average 5.4

Points 50
