Gilmartin adds three to coaching staff
Head football coach Kevin Gilmartin has welcomed three familiar faces to the coaching staff for 2013. Gregory Gosselin ’13, Daniel Kehew ’13 and Nick Lynch will help guide the Seahawks through the upcoming season.
Gosselin, a four-year defensive end for the Seahawks, will work with the defensive line. He racked up 108 tackles, including a career-high 43 in 2012. During his tenure, Gosselin also spent time on special teams as a punter, and is fourth all-time in punting yards (2,628) and attempts (78).
Last year, Gosselin was named to the New England Football Conference academic all-conference list. He graduated from Salve Regina with his bachelor’s degree in administration of justice.
After making 28 starts in 35 games on the offensive line, Kehew will work with his former line, which averaged 313.43 yards of total offense a game over the last four years. Last year, the Seahawks averaged 32.4 points and 374.8 yards per game, and ran for more than 100 yards in every game except for their season opener.
Kehew was invited to the 2012 FCS Senior Scout Bowl after helping to lead the Seahawks to their first New England Football Conference (NEFC) Boyd Division title since the year 2000. He was also named to the NEFC all-Boyd Division first team, marking the second consecutive season he earned the honor. Kehew graduated from Salve Regina with his bachelor’s degree in administration of justice.
Lynch will work with the Seahawk wide receivers after an impressive career as a wide receiver at Mount Ida College. He was a preseason all-American going into his senior year and earned spots on the New England Sports Writer’s Division II, III all-New England team and d3Football.com’s all-East region team.
At Mount Ida, Lynch was second all-time in reception yards (2,139), receptions (145) and receiving touchdowns (25). He holds the record for reception yards in a season with 1,072 in 2010.
Lynch graduated from Mount Ida in 2012 with his bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in sport management and coaching. He spent the 2012 season at Northeastern University as an assistant strength and conditioning coach for the women’s ice hockey team.
Salve Regina opens its 2013 season Sept. 7 when the Seahawks take on Bridgewater State University at Gaudet Field. Kickoff is set for noon.
