Howdy, friends! We’re back. We apologize for being away for so long. To be honest, we needed a couple of months after enduring that season.
There are a bunch of things to catch up with — good job by some of our favorite commenters in doing some of that on their own — so let’s start a list and see what we can remember.
- Wilby coach Geno Capuano resigned shortly after the season ended. He was 11-21 in three seasons.
- The New Haven Register released its 83rd All-State teams. Click on the respective links for the offense, defense and everyone else. Local honorees included Ansonia LB Tyler Bailey (First-Team Defense), Naugatuck WR Bryan Coney (Second-Team Offense) and 17 others on the honorable mention list.
- The Connecticut High School Coaches Association was the first group to release its All-State squads. Click on the respective links for the First Team, Class LL, Class L, Class M and Class S.
