YARMOUTH, Mass. -- A Division 4 state finalist last year, Dennis-Yarmouth hit a couple bumps in the road as the injury bug bit hard. But, if senior quarterback and defensive back Michael Dunn's play last weekend is any indication, the Dolphins should again be a tough out in Division 4 South.
In a 44-21 win over Cape rival Falmouth, Dunn combined for more than 300 all-purpose yards, running for 223 yards and throwing for another 135 while accounting for five touchdowns.
ESPN Boston High Schools editor Brendan C. Hall caught up with Dunn, our Player of the Week for Week 8, before Monday's practice:
