Tommy Curran, a Sophomore, is a 2 sport athlete, and plays hockey and football for the school. On weekends, Tommy participates at the Rye Boxing Club so he can stand up for himself when he feels threatened. Tommy is also an avid hunter and shoots squirrels and other rodents in his yard with a high-powered pellet gun. When I brought him up to my house in Vermont, I was stunned by his knowledge on hunting and tracking down animals. He was able to find animals by tracing footprints and listening to sounds the animals made. Tommy also never misses. He is a good shot and I was impressed by his incredible accuracy. When Tommy isn’t hunting, he watches a lot of TV,  his favorite show being “Swamp People”. Tommy’s impressions of Troy and Jay Paul are spot on and I sometimes question whether he grew up on the Bayou.

Sophomore Will Chader said, “Tommy is a an absolute legend. He’s my best friend and always will be.”

Sophomore Nick Roach said, “Although Tommy doesn’t get on the ice that much, I still look at him as an inspiration.” Tommy, like Melfi, is also very passionate about dirt biking and can be found riding on the streets of Rye very late at night. It is not uncommon for the residents on Park Ave to complain about the sound of a dirt bike engine very late at night.
