David Corcoran ’88, Inducted into BC High School Athletic Hall of Fame

Boston College High School is proud to announce that Franklin resident David Corcoran ’88 was recently inducted into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame.
David Corcoran was the backbone of the 1986 and 1987 Eagles soccer teams. In a five-overtime victory against a high scoring Falmouth High School club, Corcoran – a two-time team co-MVP – played shutdown defense to move on to the next round of the state tournament. Although the team lost to a tough Natick squad in the South Sectional Quarterfinals, the team established itself as a formidable opponent for years to come.
In 1988 as team captain, Corcoran led the Eagles to a 14-0-1 record, finishing as Catholic Conference Champion for the second year in a row. Corcoran saw success throughout his playing days and was a two-time Catholic Conference All-Star, two-time First-Team Eastern Mass All-Star, and aPatriot Ledger All-Scholastic member. He continued his Catholic education at Providence College where he was a three-year starter on successful Friars’ soccer team.
