JM Wright Technical School in Stamford announced through its Instagram page that it has been approved to co-op in football with Trinity Catholic next season.
Trinity currently is a member of the FCIAC.
GametimeCT reported in February that Trinity would likely have to co-op it football team in order to keep it going because of low enrollment at the school.
Trinity struggled filling its varsity roster last season, playing multiple freshmen in every game and not fielding a freshmen or JV team.
Last year the team had 41 players on the roster, including eight freshmen and 11 sophomores. Injuries whittled that 41 down towards the end of the season. Graduation losses left the roster hovering around 30 players at Trinity.
Wright Tech did not field a football team last season, but did so briefly back in the early part of last decade until the school suspended operations in 2009. It re-opened in 2014.
In February, Trinity Catholic Director of Marketing and Communications Michael Macari said the school was considering going the co-op route.
“There is truth to that, we are looking into the possibility of having a co-op football team. Right now, we may or may not go that route,” Macari said. “Our football program needs to add numbers to our team and obviously we may need to do that so we can have a football team.”
