Gloucester high school’s all time leading rusher had his best collegiate performance last week. Christian Sanfilippo, a junior running back at Bates College, scored three touchdowns in a 33-28 loss to Tufts.
Sanfilippo, who is used primarily as a blocker and in short yardage situations, carried the ball six times for 11 yards to go along with his three touchdowns, his first three touchdowns of the season.
Sanfilippo finished his career at Gloucester High with 3,517 yards, the school’s all time record by nearly 1,000 yards.
