Simsbury is hungry to return to the top of the division in 2014 after a disappointing 2013 campaign.
A pair of quarterbacks in Foster and Shanley have been fighting for the starting role all preseason and the winner will get the job on opening night vs. Farmington, according to the Collinsville Press.
Lukas Stone and Jake Feldman are both three-year starters that will anchor the offensive and defensive lines.
Osbourne told the Collinsville Press: “Our No. 1 goal is to stay healthy. We want to stay at plus 2 on turnover ratio. We’re 64-7 since 1990 when we are plus 2. We want to take care of the ball and attack on defense.”
The schedule isn’t kind to Simsbury, but you have to beat the best to be the best. They host Southington and Hall, back-to-back in weeks three and four and then travel to Conard. They close the season with Middletown and Glastonbury.
