Westports Sean Mulcahy to Play in Blue-Grey Game

He missed his last game at UConn due to an injury, but Westports Sean Mulcahy will play in a posteason all-star game that serves as a showcase for NFL scouts.

The 2000 Staples grad will play in the Blue-Grey game on Christmas in Troy, Ala., according to todayҒs Middletown Press.

The 6-6, 295-pound defensive tackle started in 37 straight games for the Huskies before having the streak ended in the final game of the season at Wake Forest due to a recurring neck injury.

Mulcahy recorded 37 tackles and four sacks this season. He played in all 45 games during his career before the neck injury, from which he has fully recovered, according to coach Randy Edsall.
