2015 Intro: Kehoe Brothers
In Connecticut high school football circles, the tandem of Cheshire Academy's Kehoe brothers is unmistakable. There is 6-foot-7, 235-pound tight end M.J. Kehoe, and 6-foot-4, 215-pound quarterback Patrick Kehoe, class of 2015 prospects, whom, along with their sister, are triplets. And Patrick and M.J. are beginning to create a buzz with colleges. Penn State, Rutgers, Boston College, Temple, Cincinnati and Connecticut are each showing the brothers interest. "They've all been asking me about my junior film," said M.J., who moved from receiver after his sophomore season. "I definitely improved in my blocking. It was a change at first, but over the season it got more natural for me." M.J. had 26 catches for 356 yards and three touchdowns. Patrick completed 193 of 300 passes for 3,294 yards, 39 touchdowns and five interceptions. And while there is a close bond between the two, playing together in college is not a prerequisite for potential schools. "It's gotta be close to home, within driving distance," M.J. said. "I don't want to go too far away. Academics are a big thing, and I'm (looking) for a friendly feel to the campus. The same schools are looking at both of us. The thought always crosses our mind (of playing together), but I'm sure we wouldn't be too upset if we went to different colleges." Cheshire Academy has a reputation for putting out Division I players, and one of them plays at Penn State. "I have two friends that went to Boston College and a defensive back (Malik Golden) went to Penn State, so I follow them a bit," M.J. said. "(Golden) has told me the tight ends coach is a good guy and he makes practice fun." The Kehoes' contact at Boston College is tight ends coach Frank Leonard. "From that I've heard over the phone, he seems like a nice guy," M.J. said. "He seems like he could be a really great coach. He wants me to come up for a spring practice."
