After a brief flirtation with leaving the program he coached and once starred for, Tebucky Jones is back at New Britain. Jones felt compelled to resign in January until a grassroots campaign among the New Britain community led him to return.
The Golden Hurricanes are looking to improve on last season’s 4-6 record. New Britain likely will focus on running with Gunn, Largent and Torres.
There are not too many easy dates on the New Britain schedule. The smallest school they see is Northwest Catholic on opening night and they have a good chance to see the Class S playoffs this season. They also have to face the class of Division I East in Glastonbury.
The Canes are looking to go over .500 for the first time since 2011.
