The game had been over for nearly 15 minutes, maybe a bit longer, but the Cumberland High gridders remained on the Tucker Field turf posing for pictures for any amateur photographer who asked.
Some danced around with teammates, others issued hugs to parents while a few gathered around the one holding the annual Thanksgiving Day trophy to study the history behind it.
Head coach Josh Lima and his assistants did the same; it seemed no one wanted to leave after the Clippers delivered a 42-6 blow to traditional holiday rival Woonsocket on Saturday night.
CUMBERLAND – Cumberland High head coach Josh Lima chose to employ a few funky wrinkles to his offense during its Thanksgiving Day-postponed, non-league tilt against annual archrival Woonsocket on chilly Saturday night.
He claimed such designed plays to both offensive and defensive linemen had been installed way back in August and September, but had used them sparingly this fall.
PROVIDENCE – The “condensed lineup” that Providence head coach Ed Cooley rolled out Friday afternoon proved good enough to fend off Yale, 72-66.
CENTRAL FALLS – During preseason workouts in August, some high school football coaches already know that their teams – based on numbers, talent, seasons played together, knowledge of their systems, etc. – will earn a playoff berth.
In fact, there are a few who figure their clubs, barring massive injuries, will claim a spot in their divisional Super Bowl.
For Shea High grid coach Dino Campopiano and his area brethren, it was business as usual Monday afternoon and evening.
He and his team conducted a practice under the dark, cloudy skies at the Max Read Field athletic complex in preparation of hosting archrival Tolman in a Division II crossover showdown at 7 p.m., Wednesday, despite the fact several meteorologists have forecast miserably wet and/or snowy weather through the Thanksgiving holiday.
