It has been a struggle for the MCW United program that was formed in 2016 after both Wolcott Tech and the Housatonic/Wamogo co-op didn’t field a varsity squad.
The Wolcott Tech program last won a game in 2014 when it beat winless O’Brien Tech 42-28 on Nov. 15 of that year. MCW United is 0-19 since then. Not one player in the program knows what it is like to win a varsity game.
The Housatonic/Wamogo half of the co-op’s last victory came on Oct. 15, 2011, 39-8 over Granby.
Things don’t get easier for MCW United in 2018.
Starting quarterback Derek Oakes is gone. So is starting wide-out and defensive back Christian Saade.
Despite this, MCW United does bring back 11 starters from last season’s team, including four starting offensive lineman that coach Jamie Coty called “power” and “big.”
Senior Chris Speaker takes over as quarterback and he will be joined by tight end Cade Gwinn as his top-target.
Tommy Perlotto, senior defensive lineman and Cade Gwinn, senior linebacker, will lead the MCW United defense.
MCW United has a good chance in its first game to nab the co-op’s first win. The team opens up against Wilcox Tech, which is coming off a year-long stint a JV team.
