MSG Varsity announced its 2013 All-Connecticut team on its website today. New Canaan linebacker Cole Harris was named team MVP and Fairfield Prep coach Tom Shea was named coach of the year.
Now, before you start firing off comments, it should be noted that MSG Varsity’s ‘All-Connecticut’ title is a tad misleading.
…Actually, that last sentence is actually misleading, too. The ‘All-Connecticut’ title is totally misleading from our point of view deep in the Nutmeg State. The players selected for the team only hail from the FCIAC and a few SWC and SCC towns from the Cablevision/Optimum coverage area.
Still, worth a look at who made it.
