Glastonbury has seen a lot of success under coach Scott Daniels over the years. When he took over in 2011, the program went to six-straight Class LL playoffs, continuing a string of eight straight that lasted until 2016.
Though the Tomahawks missed out on the playoffs in 2016, they finished with a winning record. Last year, however, Glastonbury finished 3-7, their first losing season in 10 years.
This year, the Tomahawks will look to bounce back with a large returning class.
“After a down year we return experience on both sides of the ball,” Daniels said. “Most skill positions return including quarterback, running back, two wide receivers and three offensive lineman. On defense we return four to five starters but have varsity experienced guys to fill those holes. Our overall team speed is the best it’s been in some time.”
Drew Daniels, the coach’s son, will be returning as the starting quarterback this season along with Matt Teeney at running back.
The three offensive lineman returning are senior Dylan Clemens, junior Brett Nelson, and senior Peter Morrisroe. The three will be an integral part of Glastonbury’s experienced offense.
Defensively, there are still gaps that must be replaced despite returning a handful of starters.
Two linebacker spots as well as as one opening on the defensive line leave the questions of who will be filling those positions, and can they be effective enough to help Glastonbury get back into form.
“With East Hartford and Manchester on the rise, there are no cakewalks in our division, especially with us coming off a 3-7 campaign,” Daniels said. “We will battle for every win on Friday night.”
