High school football | Clippers, Novans already turning the page to next season

November 30, 2014

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.

Thanksgiving Football | Teams without Bowl slots look for defining moment in rivalry matchups

November 25, 2014


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.

November 24, 2014

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.
