The 2011 football season is almost here and it’s my favorite time of year. Stafford Bulldogs youth football is looking forward to a great season. Our numbers are up from last year, and all the teams are looking to make the playoffs and compete for a championship. Coach Bernier’s Stafford High Bulldogs are returning a lot of starters from last year’s squad and look to have a winning record for the first time since the 1990’s. They are loaded with athletes so let’s make sure we are up there on Friday nights rooting them on.
UConn football is coming off it’s greatest season in history with a BCS bowl appearance. They have a new head coach in Paul Pasqualoni and are setting their sights very high this year as well. I, personally, had the priveledge of playing for Coach P at WCSU in 1986, and if anyone can keep the Huskies heading in the right direction it’s him.
After a preseason lockout, the NFL is finally ready to play some football. Make sure you play Coach Vail’s click your picks every week of the season and win some great prizes by picking the winners of each week’s games. Paradiso Insurance intern Kevin Smith and myself will be making the picks as well and sharing our thoughts on each week’s games plus a recap of all the local action each week.
