WESTFORD — Two senior football players and a junior cheerleader have been selected as Nashoba Valley Technical High School’s November Athletes of the Month.
Kourtney Jackson of Pepperell, daughter of Kevin and Kara Jackson, is a junior flyer and tumbler for the cheerleading squad and competition team. She is in the Health Assisting program.
Cheerleading coach Jill Twigg said that in addition to being “an amazing asset to the cheerleading team with her strong commitment, leadership and team values,” Kourtney is “a key player and planner in our many community-service events.”
Matthew Dixon of Pepperell, son of Allen and Aline Dixon, is a senior standout on the offensive line for the Vikings, earning the team’s Most Improved Player Award. Matthew is in the Banking/Marketing/Retail program. He participates in Nashoba Tech’s chapters of DECA and SkillsUSA. He plans to attend the University of Massachusetts Amherst next fall to study Sports Management.
Head football coach Robert Beaudette said Matthew has high character and is a leader in the locker room.
Angelo Eramo of Shirley, son of Robert and Susan Eramo, is a senior wide receiver who tallied more than 600 yards receiving and 8 touchdowns this fall for the Vikings. He is an honor-roll student in the Carpentry/Cabinetmaking program. Angelo also pitches and plays shortstop for Nashoba Tech’s baseball team. He has already signed on with the Marine Corps and will report for duty in August in Parris Island, S.C.
Beaudette called Angelo a leader on and off the field.
