Devin Pierce led Mystic Valley to 9-2 record and a berth in Division 6 championship game

Devin Pierce played quarterback throughout his career in the West Lynn Pop Warner Rams organization. Pierce learned the position well and kept improving his skills at each level. He was a team leader whose enthusiasm for playing football and overall competitiveness were admired by his coaches and teammates.

This fall as a senior captain for the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School varsity football team, Pierce had a history-making season.

Pierce led the school to its first-ever appearance in the Division 6 North title game where its season came to an end against Cathedral High School, 29-16. Pierce had piloted the offense to victories over Boston English, 30-14, and Dorchester, 24-22, in the MIAA playoffs.

Mystic Valley head coach Craig Turner said that Pierce was instrumental in the Eagles’ 9-2 record overall. Pierce was selected to the Commonwealth Conference All-Star team.

 “Devin really matured as a player this year. He worked relentlessly everyday with our quarterbacks coach Tim Morrison and that work showed each week on the game field. He mastered our offense in year two and executed our game plans each week with flawless precision. He played the game with a toughness and chip on his shoulder that made me proud to call him our quarterback.”

Devin lives in Lynn with his parents, David and Louise, and his brother, Dennis, who is an eighth grade student at Mystic Valley.
