Son of Maurice Hurst building his own football image

WESTWOOD — Forget his name for a moment, and Maurice Hurst’s story is all good. Canton-born, Xaverian-educated, and bound for Michigan, he’s a kid who’s turned out to be one of the best football players in the country. But we did say Maurice Hurst and if that sounds familiar, it should.

Maurice Hurst Jr. — and note the important addition — wants you to know it’s no big deal. There’s still frustration, but nothing his teammates or coaches at Xaverian would ever notice. His father, the former Patriots defensive back, is out of the picture, rarely seeing or even talking to his son. In fact, Maurice Sr. has never seen Maurice Jr. play a single football game, from Pop Warner to Xaverian.
