High School Yearbook: 2003

June 11, 2024

Note: We wanted to create a new feature that honored the history of the high school game a little. This is a snapshot of MIAA play in 2003, and while a lot of that info is hard to access, we still remember a good amount of it. So here’s an attempt to capture those old glories. If you have any additional information from other years, it is welcome. Here is……


Recruiting Roundup: St. John’s Prep

June 7, 2024

When you talk about the top programs in the state, St. John’s Prep always has to be in that discussion. Under coach Brian St. Pierre, the Eagles have won three D1 state titles since 2018. The Prep always plays a physical brand of football that just presents a winning formula in November and December. It should come as no surprise, then, that the Eagles are expected to be one of……


Recruiting Roundup: Phillips Exeter

June 1, 2024

Since coming to Phillips Exeter four years ago, coach Panos Voulgaris has had that program on a steady climb up the NEPSAC ranks. Last year, Exeter went 7-2, and the only losses were to Choate by three points and Cheshire Academy by two points. So Exeter is playing competitive football with the elite of the elite NEPSAC programs. Don’t expect that to change anytime soon. When it comes to players,……

Successful night for Catholic Conference Showcase

May 23, 2024

For many high school football players, a showcase is a good way to get on the radar of college coaches. But for Xaverian’s Micah Amedee, the defensive lineman is more than well known. He is a verbal commit to Boston College. Did that stop the 6-foot-3, 270-pounder from participating in Thursday night’s Catholic Conference Football Showcase at Xaverian? Absolutely not. Amedee took part, and that says a lot both about……


Recruiting Roundup: Deerfield

May 22, 2024

One of the more consistent programs in the NEPSAC is coach Brian Barbato’s Deerfield Academy squad. Last year, Deerfield went 7-3, and earned a bowl victory over ISL champion Belmont Hill. The program has earned NEPSAC bowl wins in 2019, 2021, and 2023. With the competition Deerfield faces both in the regular season and postseason, that is quite the accomplishment. So it should come as no surprise that Deerfield will……


Bo MacCormack takes over Elite League

May 19, 2024

At times, watching Bo MacCormack play, you run out of superlatives. Just know, the Syracuse verbal commit can do just about anything you ask him to on a football field. He is that good. The class of 2025 BB&N running back and safety proved it again at the Elite League “Championship Sunday” at Malden Catholic. He dominated all facets, and led his Dogs to both 8-man and full-11 titles. In……


Recruiting Roundup: Catholic Memorial

May 17, 2024

There were some things to like for Catholic Memorial in 2023. The Knights scored a big, conference win over Xaverian on the last play of the game in one of the more exciting contests of the season. But then, there were also some lowlights. In the second game of the season at Cardinal Newman of Florida, several Knights suffered serious injuries. In the postseason, CM lost to Marshfield, and fell……
