Falmouth's Lavin commits to Bryant

John Lavin, tight end and defensive end for No. 7 Falmouth High football, has given a verbal commitment to Bryant University, Clippers head coach Steve Femino confirmed Tuesday night.

Lavin has been out of the Clippers' lineup for the last several weeks while nursing a broken leg. The 6-foot-5, 215-pounder is a big target in the passing game and was a key contributor to Falmouth's Division II South championship basketball team last year.

The Clippers face Atlantic Coast League rival No. 22 Plymouth North on Friday.
