New Hampshire Football Report

Macomber selects Endicott

Garrett Macomber, who helped Plymouth Regional win the NHIAA Division II championship in 2016 and 2017, will continue his football career at Endicott College, a Division III program in Beverly, Mass.

Macomber, who played running back, defensive end and linebacker for Plymouth, is expected to be a running back for Endicott.

“It came down to, number one, the coach; number two, the academics; and then the location, the campus¬† … things like that,” Macomber said. “It was the most stressful process of my high school life. That includes tests, SATs … everything.”

Macomber was named New Hampshire’s Gatorade Player of the Year following his junior season.

Former Assumption assistant coach Paul McGonagle is in his first year as Endicott’s head coach. McGonagle got his first look at Macomber at the New Hampshire Football Showcase.

Macomber, who is 5 foot-11 and 235 pounds, said he was also considering the University of New Hampshire, where he would likely have played on the defensive side of the ball, and St. Anselm College. He then narrowed his choices to UNH and Endicott, and selected Endicott when the school increased its financial offer.

“A lot of people look at me as a gamble because I don’t have a specific position in a lot of higher-level offenses,” Macomber said. “I wanted to make sure I made the right decision because this was my life. I was gonna pick somewhere and stay there for four years. I’m very loyal. That’s where I came from.”
