CUMBERLAND â€“ Mike Stock was a mere sophomore backup tailback/safety as he watched Cumberland High, including standout senior brother Dan, throttle archrival Woonsocket, 49-0, in the R.I. Division II Super Bowl a December ago at East Greenwich's Nick Carcieri Field.
For the Clippers, it was their first state championship in decades.
WEST WARWICK â€“ In some ways, the West Warwick squad that will serve as Cumberlandâ€™s final obstacle in the road to repeating as Division II champs looks awfully familiar.
Like the stout defense the 2012 Clippers rode en route to capturing the Super Bowl, the 2013 Wizards have proven successful in writing their own â€śshutting down the oppositionâ€ť script. West Warwick will carry a nine-game winning streak into Sundayâ€™s 3 p.m. title game at Cranston Stadium, an impressive stretch that has seen head coach Shane Lagorâ€™s crew surrender 10.5 points per game.
