High School Football: Week Four Nickel Package

October 3, 2016

It was another exciting weekend of high school football in Massachusetts. Here are five thoughts from the weekend that was in high school football. Billerica’s 24-21 win over Everett is a program altering win. The Indians had a big win over Andover two weeks ago but beating Everett takes your program to another level. The Indians are legit.

July 9, 2016

Kudos to West Virginia natives Nick Saban and Jimbo Fisher for rallying around a worthy cause in their home state of West Virginia. The state was ravaged by floods last month that damaged buildings and schools.
