Funeral arrangements have been announced for former Cardinal Spellman star Joey Glynn. Visiting hours will be Sunday afternoon from 2-6 p.m. at the Quealey and Son Funeral Home in his hometown of Abington, and his funeral will be held at St. Bridget's Church in Abington at 9 a.m. Monday.
A two-time Globe All-Scholastic for basketball, Glynn died after collapsing at a men's recreational summer league game in Watertown.
Glynn, 19, served for two years as the captain of his basketball team, was the football captain his senior year, and lettered in baseball.
As a junior, he had the distinction of playing at Gillette Stadium and TD Garden. He scored the Cardinals' only touchdown in a 21-7 loss to Holliston in the Div. 3A Super Bowl at Gillette in December, 2010. Later that winter, he led the basketball team to the Div. 3 South title before losing to Watertown at TD Garden.
Glynn received a full scholarship to Bentley, and had just completed his first year. He started 16 games for the Falcons as a freshman.
Spellman is offering Joey Glynn Commemorative Jerseys. The proceeds earned from the sale of the jerseys will go to a scholarship fund in Joey's name at Cardinal Spellman.
