    The coaches are of course biased as are the journalists.
    I challenge any journalist who voted ansonia number one to write a nice tight piece entitled “this is why ansonia is the best high school football team in conn”.
    Any takers?
    Write the piece please.

  2. NED says

    While billions across America celebrated Christmas, Willie decided to spend the holiday voicing his displeasure with a Top 10 poll….

  3. NED says

    “Easy to tell who voted for their teams on this ballot” — anotherfan

    You’d be wrong as just six of the 13 voted for their own teams, and two of those six had a good reason having just won a state title….

  4. Hannibal_Barca says

    Again, a travesty that Ansonia outranks New Canaan or Southington. Ansonia didn’t beat anybody. My top 4: 1) New Canaan, 2) Southington, 3) Ansonia, 4) St. Joe’s.
