The Trojans return six starters on each side of the ball. Lyman Hall coach Aidan Lynch said the skill players should be strong this year. Junior Nick Santello, who played mainly at running back last season, gets the call at quarterback this year. The Trojans will operate out of the spread option.
Lyman Hall has options in the backfield in seniors Christian Perez-Cameron and senior Sean Thomas and sophomore fullbacks Zach Kaiser and Austin Ruiz. Seniors Kyle Bonet, Connor O’Malley and Matt Morales lead a talented receiving corps. Seniors Ben Abati and Justin Hettrich will anchor the offensive line.
The Trojans are a team with some seasoned veterans combined with younger players having to step up to fill voids left by graduation.
“There is a nucleus of returning players with some great young talent mixed in,” Lynch said. “It’s a talented and deep group despite some injuries already in practice.”
While the line at each side returns some starters, Lyman Hall lacks physical size.
“We are not as big as we would like to be up front,” Lynch said. “Some young players still need to develop. Staying healthy will be key for this group.”
The Trojans open the season at home on Sept. 9 against Branford. It’s the first game at Fitzgerald Field since 2014. Lyman Hall did not play at home at all last season due to renovations at the field, which include new turf, new lights and an eight-lane track. The Trojans played “home” games at Sheehan High last season.
Lyman Hall is a member of the newly-formed SCC Division III, which also includes Branford, Creed/Career/Whitney Tech, East Haven, Guilford, Law and Sheehan.
“I think Branford is the team to beat,” Lynch said. “I believe we can compete to win with every team on our schedule. We could surprise some team this year.”
