New England Patriots running back Jonas Gray is marching in this year's Cape Cod St. Patrick's Parade on Saturday, March 7, 2015.
A 2011 graduate of the University of Notre Dame, where he was a political science major, Gray had a stellar game against the Indianapolis Colts this season, rushing for 201 yards and scoring four touchdowns. The performance put him on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Gray is joining Grand Marshall Cindy Fitzgibbon, Channel Five meteorologist.
Led by co-chairs John Fallon and Mairead McCann, the Cape Cod St. Patrick's Parade is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year as one of the region's most popular Irish parades. The two-mile parade starts at 11:00 a.m., and proceeds from Long Pond Drive and Rt 28 in South Yarmouth to its finish at the Town N Country Motel on Rt 28 in West Yarmouth. Here is the parade map.
