NORTH SMITHFIELD â€” For the first time in recent memory, North Smithfield High's Thanksgiving morning tilt at Division IV rival Scituate will have more on the line than mere casual alumni interest and bragging rights for the victor.

NORTH SMITHFIELD â€” It was early in the second quarter of a non-league tilt against Plainfield, Conn. on Friday night, Nov. 1 when North Smithfield High junior tailback Nick Cicerone hustled out of his stance to snag a middle screen pass from classmate Cody DeMarie.

â€śA lineman tipped it, but I went up for it and caught it,â€ť the younger Cicerone stated while watching a recent practice from the sideline. He immediately paused and looked at a teammate.
