After Surviving Parkland School Shooting, Tyler Goodman, Nick Defroscia Call Nichols College Home

DUDLEY, Mass.—Reporters from NBC Boston, FOX25 Boston, and NESN were at Nichols College in late August to interview Stoneman Douglas High School (Parkland, Fla.) graduates and Nichols College first-year student football players Tyler Goodman ’22 and Nick Defroscia ’22.

During their interviews, Tyler and Nick remembered their friends and coach who were lost in the Feb. 14, 2018, Parkland school shooting, and look to their future as Bison athletes and sport management majors.

Assistant Dean for Enrollment Paul Brower (who was in the Stoneman Douglas football office with the students during the time of the shooting); and Dale Olmsted, head Nichols football coach, were also interviewed by the reporters.

Watch the news stories, below.
