Patriots: Cam steals the show on the final day of minicamp

The final minicamp practice of the off-season was the best practice of the off-season for Cam Newton. After listening to weeks of the media and fans alike fawning over Mac Jones and proclaiming a quarterback competition, Newton reminded us that when he is on, he could be the best quarterback on the roster. Newton completed 17 of 21 passes total and was 14-17 in team. Mechanically, he looked more refined…


Patriots: Day Two Mini Camp Thoughts

The weather wasn’t as much of a factor so we got a pretty good look at the passing game. The big news was that Mac Jones got the most reps out of the quarterbacks. Here are my thoughts on that and other tidbits from the second day of mandatory minicamp. 1….


High School: Westford Academy names Bruce Rich Jr head football coach

High School: Sean Brackett named new head coach at Waltham High School

Fire Up the Hawks. It’s a saying that most kids hear throughout their childhood and throughout high school when growing up in Waltham.

Late last weekend, Waltham High School athletic director Steve…

Here are my thoughts on some of the events of day one of mini camp. 1. Mac Jones excelling in a red zone drill snd Cam Newton struggling in…

A lot…


Boston College: An expanded playoff gives the Eagles a shot at playing for a national championship

Image courtesy of Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports It is finally happening. There will be college football playoff expansion at the FBS level barring a last minute change of plans. Initially, many thought that if expansion happened, the playoff would go from four teams to eight. However, with news breaking on Thursday that the playoff is expanding from four teams to twelve, that opened the door for eight other teams to…


High School: Bernard plans on keeping AB on top by preaching family and a team first mentality

When you talk to recently hired Acton-Boxboro Head Football Coach Justin Bernard, you don’t get the sense that the 29 year old is going to be a first time head coach. Bernard sounds like a man who has run a program before. He has a clear vision and a plan. A plan that will allow Acton-Boxboro to contend year in and year out. Taking over at Acton-Boxboro is not an…


Patriots: Mac Jones meets the media at OTA’s

For the first time in his Patriots career (aside from draft night) Mac Jones met with the media on Thursday. The rookie quarterback had his first press (Zoom) conference following another day of OTA’s. OTA’s finish up next week before the guys head their own separate ways for a few weeks. Training camp officially starts on July 27 and as of right now fans still have absolutely no idea whether…
