Carberg’s Husband Named To Hall of Fame

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

And speaking of NBC CT, anchor Lisa Carberg is doing some celebrating. Her husband, Jeff Palmer ( who grew up in Plainville, Ct and whose dad, Charlie,  was the high school’s longtime football coach ) was recently inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame for Milford Academy.

Carberg notes: “Of just 20 players in their hall of fame, 3 are from Plainville! Nico Koutouvides, R. J. Anderson and Jeff Palmer!”

She adds: “It’s a football-focused prep school that used to be in Milford and is now in NY. They turn out lots of NFL players who change their lives there.       Jeff was only there for 4 months, but earned several football scholarship offers and accepted University of Miami’s to become a Hurricane.  His team in 1972 was undefeated. Jeff had 10 interceptions as a fearless defensive plan. For a guy from Plainville, it was quite an accomplishment. His Milford Academy yearbook write up said “We will never understand how such a firiendly guy could cause such devastation on the field.”

Carberg notes that UCONN Football Coach Paul Pasqualoni was the speaker at his Hall of Fame Induction ceremony.

    Congratulations Jeff!!! I played for your dad at PHS back in the late 1950’s and remember all the fun we had playing for Coach Palmer. He was one of the mem that inspired me to become a teacher coach and a worthwhile career. Our best to you and the family.

    Congrats. It has been a lot of years. I played for your Dad for 3 years and it left a lifetime impression.Had it not been for your Dad, my 11 years in the Navy would not have been as easy. I laughed in boot camp of the complaining at some of the things we had to do and the complaining of some. I just thought of the 2 a day practices in the Augut sun and boot camp was a piece of cake. Your Dad was special.
