Coury, Jean-Guillaume receive first offers

A pair of region football standouts received their first Division 1 offers from Central Connecticut State on Tuesday.

First, Shepherd Hill announced that rising senior quarterback Drew Jean-Guillaume had picked up an offer from the Blue Devils.

The Blue Devils are offering the 5-foot-10, 200-pound Jean-Guillaume as a running back. In his sophomore season of 2012, Jean-Guillaume started at wingback in the Rams' "Double Wing" offense as they reached the MIAA Division 2 Central Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium. Last season, Jean-Guillaume moved to quarterback, and totaled 665 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground, to go with two passing touchdowns.

Jean-Guillaume is also a standout in track and field for the Rams. His fastest 100-meter dash registers in the 10.8-second range.

Minutes following the news on Jean Guillaume, Lowell rising senior outside linebacker/strong safety Nicolau Coury also posted on receiving his first Division 1 FCS offer from Central Connecticut.
