Welcome to Week 2.
Tonight begins the first official round of SCC-SWC-ECC crossover games in the ‘Connecticut High School Football Alliance’ scheduling consortium, giving us intriguing matchups like Cheshire (SCC) at Newtown (SWC), Norwich Free Academy (ECC) at Fairfield Prep (ECC), Masuk (SWC) at North Haven (SWC), Brookfield (SWC) at Hillhouse, and so on. Read more about that here from Ryan Lacey.
There are also key games in the FCIAC, particularly Staples at Wilton, a pair of 1-0 teams with new coaches. John Nash profiled the latest (and last) Phillips brothers of Wilton.
New Canaan is also looking for its first win of the year when it plays host to 1-0 Danbury. Anthony Parelli profiled New Canaan’s tribute to former coach Jason Cooper, who died unexpectedly over the summer.
Look for a bunch of other tributes from across the region, including at Ansonia where the Chargers will honor late coach Jack Hunt by naming the practice field after him. Amity is honoring former coach Bill Johnson, who died over the summer.
There are also some interesting games in the Pequot. While Coginchaug-HK was postponed to Saturday, Morgan plays host to Valley Regional. Pete Paguaga profiled Morgan QB JP Nye, who had a big opening night despite a loss last week.
Sean Patrick Bowley has his first fresh batch of Audibles, quick hits on the weekend’s games.
