Team-by-team looks at the 2018 Connecticut Technical Conference football season. Compiled by the GameTimeCT staff.
CHEAT SHEET — Junior QB C.J. Cianflone and senior RB Matt Christe are the Wolverines’ only two offensive starters back from last year’s 6-4 squad.
CHEAT SHEET — Chris Pace takes over as head coach. Now the Tigers, Class S quarterfinalists a year ago, turn their attention to replacing All-State QB Tyrese Wright.
CHEAT SHEET —Cheney Tech graduated 18 seniors from last year’s 4-6 team. The Beavers will look to lineman Daniel LaRose and back RB/LB Jadeon Jones.
CHEAT SHEET —The Wolcott Tech/Housatonic/Wamogo co-op hasn’t won a game since its incorporation in 2016. But 11 starters return, including four on the offensive line, to help the team chase down that elusive first win.
CHEAT SHEET — Coming off a glorious, 8-3 season, including the first playoff appearance in school history, the Condors hope to do it all over again. The Roc brothers, Jommar and Jonte, return as the top weapons in the Condors’ single wing offense.
CHEAT SHEET — Only a handful of starters return from squad that finished 3-7. Coach Jimmy Benjamin believes this team will compete, beginning with his switch to the wing-T offense in order to play to QB Joseph Calzone’s strengths.
CHEAT SHEET — The Falcons are looking to atone for their stumble across the finish line last year. They went 7-3, but lost three of their final four games to fall out of the running for a playoff spot.
CHEAT SHEET — With 16 returning starters, including Josh Dodd for a third year as starting quarterback and four offensive linemen, the Pride look like they’re ready to challenge the CTC’s hierarchy. Early games vs. Bullard Havens and O’Brien Tech will show how ready.
CHEAT SHEET — The Crusaders were 5-5 during a feast-of-famine season. Veterans return on the offensive and defensive lines to help RB/LB Josh Brown and WR/DB Ismael Rivera-Garcia compete for a winning season under second-year coach Darin Jones.
CHEAT SHEET — The cooperative program lost longtime partner East Hampton (now co-oping with Coginchaug and Hale Ray), but it did pick up Whitney Tech from the closure of Creed-New Haven. Coach Joe Cefaratti returns a bunch of veterans from last year’s 1-9 team, including RB Nehemiah Brown.
CHEAT SHEET — The Indians return 11 starters from that team who are ready to get back after a year spent as a junior-varsity outfit. Seven of them are on the offensive side of the ball.
