Lovell earns first-team at Marshall
Josh Lovell of Gloucester, a red-shirt freshman at Marshall University, has been named first-team right tackle on this year’s Thundering Herd football team.
Lovell, who is listed on the Marshall website as 6’6" and weighing 266 pounds, played at Gloucester High School under Dukes’ coach Tommy Reamon. He transferred to Christchurch School, graduating in 2010.
A pass-catching tight end in high school, Lovell made the transition to the offensive line after enrolling at Marshall. Lovell is the son of Dexter and Michelle Lovell and the grandson of Pat Minarik, all of Gloucester.
Marshall University kicks off its 2011 season at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 4 against the West Virginia Mountaineers in a game to be televised on ESPN.
