Cheshire Academy honors local

SP Brief - McMahon Hall of Fame

On Saturday, Oct. 3, Ed McMahon of Southington was inducted into the Cheshire Academy Kevin Slaughter Memorial Hall of Fame during homecoming facilities at the Cheshire campus. McMahon, a member of the Class of 1965, played an end position on the undefeated 1964 Fighting Cats high school football team. The squad was victorious against college freshmen teams such as Harvard and the University of Connecticut, ending the season with a 6-0-1 record. A plaque commemorating the induction is displayed in the school’s field house near that of fellow team member and former Denver Bronco running back Frank Quayle who was inducted in 2012.
