September 22, 2013

Even on the phone, the unbridled enthusiasm in Tyrone Nared’s voice was readily apparent.

Defense recuses Novans in shutout of Panthers

September 21, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The Woonsocket High coaching staff prides itself on instilling in its players a good, sound understanding of fundamental football.

McGair: Arrival of league play means high school football season is truly under way

September 19, 2013

The 2013 campaign begins in earnest Friday night with the opening of league play, a time where teams battle it out for division championships and jockey for position in league standings, all fighting toward a common goal: to make it to that next – and final – “new” – season, a.k.a. the playoffs.
