Last season, Farmington football was senior heavy at the skill positions with Jeremy Buck, Ivan Guadalupe and a trio of wide receivers. That group led the Indians to the Class L playoffs. If they are going to repeat the success of last year, a new group will have to lead the way.
Xavier Amos has the most experience of any returning tailback, and that’s not much. The junior had 16 carries for 42 yards in 2013. It’s going to be tough to replicate the season Guadalupe has a year ago (140 carries for 1007 yards and nine TDs). Amos will take hand-offs from Michael Popolizio in the run-heavy offense.
Popolizio has played most of his snaps on the defensive side of the ball recording 16 tackles a year ago.
Dan Hardiman, a three-year starter, will lead both the offensive and defensive lines. A year ago, he recorded 53 tackles, four for a loss, one and a half sacks and forced a fumble. Vincent Stevens, a two-year starter, will join Hardiman in the trenches.
Last season, Jack Sucato recorded 81 tackles, the most of any returning player. Look for the strong safety and running back to be a force on both sides of the ball.
The Indians have a lot of holes to fill on the offensive side of the ball and if they are to qualify for the playoffs for a second consecutive year, they will have to fill those holes quickly. The two games they lost last year were Middletown and Manchester and add in close wins vs. Bristol Eastern and Wethersfield, Farmington has it’s work cut out.
