EVERETT -- Manny Asprilla has one goal he can think of right now: Winning an MIAA Super Bowl.
Sounds kinda familiar doesn't it?
Difference is, with Asprilla, a 6-foot 180-pound defensive back and tailback who has committed to Boston College, he may have the talent around him to get it done.
Everett touts an abundance of returning players, including a number of two-year starters up and down its roster. Coach John DiBiaso has hailed, among other things, that the strength of his team is its experience. It helps with guys like Asprilla, who have played all four years, leading the way. Not to forget veterans like Shaquille Taylor, Matt Costello and junior quarterback John DiBiaso Jr. Check out the video above to get their take on this year's Crimson Tide in the latest edition of our high school football training camp tour.
