Good day, ladies and gentlemen. At long last, August has arrived and soon we’ll hear the familiar and welcoming sounds of whistles, shouts, cadences and the clash of pads. It’s almost football season.
What will the 2016 season bring?
As we’ve done every year here at Connecticut Football Central, here is an interactive look at Connecticut’s top-returning players mostly from CIAC schools. This graphic is compiled using statistics that were — and we can’t stress this enough — entered by teams on MaxPreps.com.
There are still many teams that don’t provide statistics, so yea, it’s not an all-encompassing look. There are some notable absences. But we think it gives us a decent snapshot of who’s got what this season.
On the graphic below, cycle through the main categories — rushing, passing, receiving, scoring, sacks and interceptions. Hover over individual player entries for detailed statistics. Click conference buttons to look at leaders by league.
Schools that have changed leagues or players who have transferred have been noted based on information available as of August 2.
Additions or corrections can be made only by the head coach. To make a correction (and we’re sure there will be a few), have the head coach email Sean Patrick Bowley at email@example.com.
A word of warning: We’re not going crazy with updates. A simple solution is to post accurate stats on MaxPreps.
For reference, here’s last year’s returning leaderboards.
