Joe Giempietro fueling Merrimack High School’s running game

Merrimack running back Joe Giampietro has had an injury-plagued career, but the senior appears to be fully healthy for the 2014 season. He has compiled 146 yard and a pair of touchdowns through two games, including Merrimack’s 16-13 win Saturday night over Bishop Guertin, in which he made the decisive score in the closing minutes of the game. He seems primed to get the bulk of the Tomahawks’ carries as the season progresses. “It’s nice for him because this is the first time in two years that he’s actually cleared game two,” Merrimack coach Dante Laurendi said. “So that was a victory in itself, getting him through game two. I’m sure it weighed on him mentally.” After carrying the ball only 11 times in his team’s opening-day victory over Keene, Giampietro saw his usage increase in game two.
