Everett's McCarthy commits to Stetson

By Brendan Hall

Everett High senior catcher Buck McCarthy confirmed with this afternoon that he has verbally committed to Stetson University for the 2012-13 school year.

McCarthy, a member of ESPNBoston's inaugural MIAA All-State team last spring, was also considering scholarship offers from Rhode Island, Bryant, Maryland and Vanderbilt. The Hatters, however, were the only ones to step forward with a full ride, 55 percent of it on athletic merit and the rest of academic merit.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound McCarthy is also a linebacker for the defending Division 1 Super Bowl champion football squad, and will be a captain this fall.
