Keches Law Group committed $100 per catch throughout NFL season
Keches Law is always looking for ways to connect and give back. Whether by supporting good causes like Habit for Humanity y Dinner for Champions, by organizing Thanksgiving dinner home deliveries or by partnering with teams like the Patriots, Bruins and Free Jacks, Keches has deep roots in our community.
During this regular season, Keches made a major commitment through the “Catches for College” sponsorship promotion with 98.5 The Sports Hub radio network. For every catch made by a Patriots player, Keches committed $100 to its education fund. By the end of the Patriots’ last game, Keches had contributed $35,100 for 351 completions.
“We’re proud to be the official law firm of the New England Patriots and are thrilled to be able to raise such a sizable amount of money to put towards our scholarship fund,” says Keches Law Managing Partner Sean Flaherty.
Catching Up on the Season
The season started off hot with 66 catches through two weeks, but as the team skidded and the quarterback position bounced between Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe, the receptions slowed. The lowest total of the season came in the final game on the schedule against the New York Jets played in the snow on Jan. 7 where the team completed just 12 passes.
The Patriots were bit by the injury bug in a major way this year and it hurt their ability to bring in receptions. Top target Kendrick Bourne tore his right ACL during week 8 and missed the rest of the season. Starting running back Rhamondre Stevenson was shut down because of injury and tight end Hunter Henry missed multiple games as well.
When it was all said and done, the team leader in receptions was running back Ezekiel Elliot with 51, with rookie standout Demario “Pop” Douglas coming in second with 49.
The initiative came in tandem with Keches Law being named the official Law Firm of the New England Patriots this year. As part of the partnership, during games Keches Law advertised on Gillette Stadium’s brand new 22,200 square-foot video board, which is the largest curved outdoor video board in the United States.
Keches Law has a long history of community involvement and charitable causes in Massachusetts and beyond. Keches Cares, the non-profit charity founded by Keches Law Group, raises funds throughout the year. For the past five years, Keches Law has awarded a college scholarship. North Reading resident Molly Harrington was the 2023 recipient.
