ISL Football Rankings – Week 5 (10/16/17)….

Half of the 2017 ISL football schedule is in the books and Lawrence Academy remains at the top of the standings with a perfect 4-0 record as they now travel to 8th ranked St. Sebastian’s for a big game this Saturday. There are also a number of other ranked teams that will play one another this weekend.

  1. Lawrence Academy (4-0) – One can’t help but wonder how the University of Rhode Island has commits from Lawrence Academy’s Thomas Greaney along with Everett’s Kevin Brown and Duane Binns. That is a really good job of recruiting Massachusetts. Next up: at (8) St. Sebastian’s.
  2. Governor’s Academy (3-1) – Governor’s defensive line of sophomore DE Kevin Lemieux (6’4″ and 240), junior DT Jos Cremers (6’5″ and 295)and senior DE Cam Gagnon (6’4″ and 245) could be the best in the state. Next up: at (9) Tabor Academy.
  3. BB&N (3-1) – A team that from start to finish will be the most improved in the ISL and they have another huge game this week as they host Milton Academy with both teams looking for a critical fourth win. Next up: (4) Milton Academy.
  4. Milton Academy (3-1) – Fifteen year old sophomore RB/LB Kalel Mullings is one of the best overall players in the entire state and he will have a long list of top college programs to choose from. On tape he plays a lot like Boston College sensation AJ Dillon. Next up: at (3) BB&N.
  5. Belmont Hill (2-2) – Lost a close game against fourth ranked Milton Academy and they now face a brutal second half schedule of Nobles, Lawrence Academy, St. Sebastian’s and Governor’s. Next up: (6) Noble and Greenough.
  6. Noble and Greenough (3-1) – Freshman Julian Tarpey had a huge kick return for a touchdown in the Bulldogs win over Roxbury Latin. They now have to travel to Belmont Hill where they will try and slow down the BH passing attack led by Duke bound wide receiver Jake Bobo. Next up: at (5) Belmont Hill.
  7. Brooks School (3-1) – Brooks was hit with a tough opening loss to Governor’s but they have turned things around nicely since then. An end of regular season contest against third ranked BB&N could be a very good football game. Next up: Middlesex.
  8. St. Sebastian’s (1-3) – They play the toughest schedule in the ISL (and maybe the entire state) as they lose close, back-to-back games against BB&N and Governor’s and now host top ranked Lawrence Academy. Next up: (1) Lawrence Academy.
  9. Tabor Academy (1-3) – Another team with a brutal overall schedule coming off a loss to third ranked BB&N and they now face second ranked Governor’s. Next up: (2) Governor’s Academy.
  10. Thayer Academy (3-1) – The Brooks’ offense is tough to stop when it has things going the way they currently do. Next up: Roxbury Latin.

October Football News and Notes (10/10/17)…

Let’s see what is new as we are now 71 days out from the beginning of the December 20th early signing period for the class of 2018. It will also be interesting to see how many recruits enroll early at school as quarterback EJ Perry did at Boston College last January.

It should not come as a big surprise to see the University of Southern Mississippi (USM) actively recruiting football players in Massachusetts. They recently offered Everett’s Mike Sainristil and Isaiah Likely but they were also second to offer Lewis Cine of Everett way back in May. Recruiting guru Paul Gonnella is on the USM staff and grew up playing football and basketball at Wakefield High School here in Massachusetts (where he is in the Athletic Hall of Fame).

A couple of key games this weekend with two undefeated teams in Nantucket and Mashpee meeting on Friday night in Mashpee. Last season Mashpee won a Super Bowl title but lost to Nantucket 31-26 in a road game where they turned the ball over three times.

In the ISL the key game will be Belmont Hill at Milton Academy. Both of these teams have 2-1 records with five games left in their regular season. A second loss in the ISL can kill a team’s bowl hopes as head to head records are what cost a two loss Lawrence Academy team a bowl bid last season.

The three FBS college football programs in New England are now a combined 3-14 with BC 2-4, UMass 0-6 and UConn 1-4.

BC Head Coach Steve Addazio has moved up to #7 on the coaches hot seat rankings and UMass Head Coach Mark Whipple is currently ranked at #11. Addazio’s press conference following the Virginia Tech loss was highlighted by him saying about his offense “it will come together and it will be beautiful…”. The Eagles had better hope so as they are on the road at high scoring Louisville this weekend against Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson.

Everett is 4-0 and has put up 38, 33, 42 and 55 points against some very good football teams including Xaverian Brothers and St. John’s Prep. Their defense in these games has given up 7, 7, 28 and 27 but much of that scoring came later in games with the Everett starters no longer playing.

Speaking of Everett, it is interesting to see on their MaxPreps schedule page they are already listed as playing BC High on Saturday December 2nd. This is a likely Super Bowl scenario but not sure we should make it official yet.

Make sure to catch Wes Welker’s “A Football Life” on the NFL Network. His high school football coach faxed information on the 5’9″ and 185 pound Welker to 105 Division 1 schools with only one school, Texas Tech and Head Coach Mike Leach, showing any interest. Couldn’t help but think of a certain three-sport star athlete at Lexington while watching the Welker episode.

People tend to think Cambridge’s Matt Damon got his start in the movie “Good Will Hunting” but forget he starred five years earlier in the football movie “School Ties” as running back and lead blocker Charlie Dillon.

ISL Football Rankings – Week 4 (10/9/17)…

Week three of ISL football play saw the top two ranked teams battle it out with Lawrence Academy prevailing with a late touchdown to beat Governor’s Academy by a score of 27-20. Let’s take a look at the updated ISL power rankings:

  1. Lawrence Academy – (3-0) – Freshman Tony Muse led the Lawrence Academy rushing attack and URI bound Thomas Greaney had the game clinching interception to seal the victory. We would love to see this Lawrence Academy team play an end of season game against top ranked Everett from the MIAA. Next up: at St. Mark’s.
  2. Governor’s Academy – (2-1) – Multi-sport athlete and dynamic playmaker Quin Stott scored a touchdown on the first play of the game and Governor’s led 14-13 at the half but Lawrence Academy made more plays in the second half for the comeback victory. Next up: at (8) St. Sebastian’s.
  3. BB&N – (2-1) – Played a very difficult schedule so far with a loss to top ranked Lawrence Academy and solid wins over 4th ranked Belmont Hill and 8th ranked St. Sebastian’s. Next up: (10) Tabor Academy.
  4. Belmont Hill – (2-1) – The Belmont Hill offense was firing on all cylinders in their big 42-12 win on the road at Tabor Academy. Next up: at (5) Milton Academy.
  5. Milton Academy – (2-1) – Sophomore Kalel Mullings had a big game as Milton Academy beat Roxbury Latin 42-6. The Mustangs now face a huge home game with Belmont Hill coming up this Saturday. Next up: (4) Belmont Hill.
  6. Noble and Greenough – (2-1) – Jason Medeiros led the way on both offense and defense as Nobles beat Groton 42-16. Next up: at Roxbury Latin.
  7. Brooks School – (2-1) – The Brooks offense took care of business in their big 51-21 win over St. George’s. Next up: (9) Thayer Academy.
  8. St. Sebastian’s – (1-2) – A very talented team that has come up just short against 5th ranked Milton Academy and now 3rd ranked BB&N. It doesn’t get any easier this week as they play 2nd ranked Governor’s Academy. Next up: (2) Governor’s Academy.
  9. Thayer Academy – (3-0) – Stay perfect on the season at 3-0 but now have to play on the road as they take on Brooks School this coming weekend. Next up: at (7) Brooks School.
  10. Tabor Academy – (1-2) – Lost to Belmont Hill and they now have to regroup as they travel to play third ranked BB&N. Next up: at (3) BB&N.

Mass High School Football – Week 5 Poll and Notes (10/5/17)…

  1. Everett High School (3-0) – A rare bye week for Everett as juniors Mike Sainristil and Lewis Cine, along with senior Isaiah Likely, all visited Penn State. Very surprised Likely has yet to receive Power 5 offers as a 6’4″ and 225 pound wide receiver who is very difficult to match up against.
  2. BC High (4-0) – Will Bowen, Danny Abraham and Bobby DeMeo lead an explosive offense that averages more than thirty points per game this season.
  3. St. John’s Shrewsbury (4-0) – Maybe the toughest game left on their regular season schedule this week as they play a very good and undefeated Shrewsbury team.
  4. Central Catholic High School (4-0) – Played well on both sides of the ball in their dominating 44-14 win against Billerica. The Division 1 North playoffs are going to be great.
  5. Marshfield High School (3-1) – Still have to travel to play Dennis-Yarmouth on October 13th but not sure how many teams can actually give the Rams a competitive game. Sophomore Casey Phinney is quickly becoming one of the top players in the Mass class of 2020.
  6. Lexington High School (4-0) – Very hard to beat a Minutemen team that averages almost forty points per game on offense.
  7. Bridgewater-Raynham High School (3-1) – Bryce Shaw and the B-R defense has held up as they wait for star running back Devante Greaves to return from injury.
  8. St. John’s Prep (2-2) – Move to 2-2 with a big win over Malden Catholic and they now go on the road to play a Catholic Memorial team that has been playing much better with back to back wins over Brockton and Xaverian Brothers.
  9. Xaverian Brothers High School (1-3) – Could be another close, low scoring game against Brockton this week as the Hawks offense has struggled.
  10. Mashpee High School (4-0) – If Mashpee and Nantucket can win out this week a clash of unbeaten teams will take place on October 13th.
  11. King Philip High School (4-0) – Remain unbeaten with their big comeback win over Mansfield.
  12. Marblehead High School (4-0) – Another unbeaten team with a very talented senior class that is on a mission this year.
  13. Duxbury High School (3-1) – Duxbury seems to have integrated new skill players along with a seasoned offensive line and they now play a solid Silver Lake team this Friday night.
  14. Falmouth High School (3-1) – A nice bounce back win over Sandwich and now they face a very good Dennis-Yarmouth team on Friday night.
  15. North Attleboro (3-1) – Two very tough games coming up with Foxboro tomorrow night and on the road at Stoughton next Friday night.
  16. Natick High School (4-0) – Started out their season with excellent defense but they are now showing their offense can put points on the board as well and they now travel to play always tough Walpole tomorrow night.
  17. Mansfield High School (3-1) – Another Hockomock League team in this week’s rankings that will look to bounce back from a tough loss to King Philip.
  18. Lincoln-Sudbury High School (4-0) – Another unbeaten team that is rolling right now.
  19. North Andover High School (4-0) – Playing very well at this point in the season but face an always dangerous Billerica team tomorrow night.
  20. Foxboro High School (3-1) – A huge game at North Attleboro tomorrow night after surviving in overtime against Canton.
  21. Reading High School (3-1) – Bounced back from their loss to Lexington by beating a good Belmont team.
  22. Tewksbury High School (3-1) – Responded to their loss to North Andover with a win over Dracut.
  23. Dennis-Yarmouth High School (4-0) – Big battle on the Cape as D-Y will host Falmouth tomorrow night.
  24. Stoughton High School (3-1) -Couple of tough road games coming up with Canton tomorrow night and North Attleboro next week.
  25. Lowell High School (4-0) – The high scoring Lowell offense beat Andover 51-48 but they now face top ranked Everett tomorrow night.

Mass High School Football – Week 4 Poll and Notes (9/28/17)…

Very interesting weekend of football coming up with many of the games being played tonight or tomorrow afternoon.

  1. Everett High School (3-0) – The good news for the competition is that there are probably more than ten seniors who will graduate from this Everett team and go on to play college football.
  2. BC High (3-0) – Beat a pretty good Hudson Catholic team down in New Jersey last week and now will play at Brockton this week.
  3. St. John’s Shrewsbury (3-0) – The Pioneers play a very good Wachusett Regional team this week before a showdown with Shrewsbury High School next week.
  4. Central Catholic High School (3-0) – The Central Catholic offense continues to produce but their defense gave up a lot of points against Methuen and now face an always tough Billerica team.
  5. Marshfield High School (2-1) – Marshfield dominated against a solid Falmouth team and they will now play Nauset Regional this week.
  6. Lexington High School (3-0) – Maybe the most fun team to watch in the state this year as their offense is just loaded with playmakers.
  7. Xaverian Brothers High School (1-2) – Hard to slide the Hawks down too far given their losses came to the top ranked team in Massachusetts and the top ranked team in New York.
  8. Bridgewater-Raynham High School (2-1) – Bryce Shaw stepped it up on offense to help B-R rebound from a tough loss at Xaverian Brothers.
  9. St. John’s Prep (1-2) – Another team with two losses but both were to top five ranked teams.
  10. Mashpee High School (3-0) – A mid October game against Nantucket is looming as this was the Falcons only loss last season.
  11. King Philip High School (3-0) – Maybe the best game of the week tonight as Mansfield travels to KP in a Hockomock League showdown.
  12. Marblehead High School (3-0) – The Magicians appear to be a team determined to make it back to the Super Bowl this season.
  13. Mansfield High School (3-0) – Managed a win against Franklin and the Hornets now get a shot to take down the defending Super Bowl champions as they travel to play King Philip tonight.
  14. Duxbury High School (2-1) – Replaced a lot of talent from last year’s Super Bowl championship team but it looks like things are coming together and their defensive play has been terrific.
  15. Falmouth High School (2-1) – The Clippers ran into a hot Marshfield team that not too many public programs can play with this season.
  16. North Attleboro High School (2-1) – Still have Foxboro and Stoughton coming up on their October schedule.
  17. Natick High School (3-0) – A big win over Milton has Natick looking very good at this point in the season.
  18. Andover High School (2-1) – Similar to Duxbury, Andover replaced a lot of key skill positions and things appear to be headed in the right direction.
  19. Lincoln-Sudbury High School (3-0) –  A team that is scoring a lot of points in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
  20. North Andover High School (3-0) – Looking back at our poll from last week we sort of saw that their upset win over Tewksbury was a possibility.
  21. Foxboro High School (2-1) – A scrappy team with an excellent defense and solid wins over Hingham and Stoughton.
  22. Reading High School (2-1) – A tough loss to Lexington but a lot of teams are going to be saying that this season.
  23. Tewksbury High School (2-1) – Not too surprised with their loss to North Andover as their first two wins were both close games.
  24. Dennis-Yarmouth High School (3-0) – Back to back games in October against Falmouth and Marshfield will be a big test for a very solid D-Y team.
  25. Stoughton High School (2-1) – A tough loss to Foxboro as multiple turnovers doomed the Black Knights.

 

Weekend Football Wrap Up (9/26/17)….

Gabe DeSouza of North Andover had a pretty big weekend helping his team in all three phases of the game as they upset Tewksbury by a score of 35-16. Watching his film from that game and seeing how athletic he is one has to wonder how good are the skill players at Everett if DeSouza was largely used as a kicker for the state champions last season?

Speaking of Everett, six different players scored touchdowns for them in their big win at St. John’s Prep. If Everett can win out in the very tough Division 1 North playoff bracket a Super Bowl showdown with BC High might be in the cards.

Speaking of BC High, they traveled to New Jersey and beat Hudson Catholic 30-14. Xaverian Brothers traveled to New York and lost to Archbishop Stepinac which is one of the best teams in that state.

Apparently there is a big game between King Philip and Mansfield this Thursday night at 7:00 PM. Keep an eye on playmakers Shane Frommer for King Philip and Hunter Ferreira for Mansfield.

Lawrence Academy newcomers all contributed in their win over BB&N with Tony Muse returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown, Spencer Aronson scoring on a pick six and Justin Barron catching a touchdown pass.

Catholic Memorial finally got a win as they went on the road and beat a good Brockton team.

Sal Frelick gets most of the headlines for Lexington’s prolific offense but he gets a lot of support from Ben Quint and Anthony Bianchi.

One of the bigger surprises of the weekend was Governor’s Academy going on the road and shutting down the Brooks School offense in a 23-7 win.

UMass and Boston College both played on the road in hostile venues and both teams were competitive. UMass ultimately fell to Tennessee and is now 0-5 and BC lost to Clemson to move to 1-3 on the season.

Best game of the week had to be the thriller between St. Sebastian’s and Milton Academy as both teams had late chances to win the game with Milton Academy holding on for a 21-19 overtime win.

  7. Brooks School  – (0-1) – Surprisingly the very talented Brooks’ offense couldn’t figure out the Governor’s Academy defense in their 23-7 loss. Next up: (10) Groton School.
  8. Tabor Academy – (1-0) – Running back Angel Santiago and the Tabor offense started the season hot in their 32-14 win over St. Mark’s. Next up: (6) St. Sebastian’s School.

Mass High School Football – Week 3 Poll and Notes (9/21/17)…

  1. Everett High School (2-0) – Another impressive win over Leominster and they now have to go on the road to play at St. John’s Prep this weekend. Everett is making the toughest part of their schedule look easy.
  2. BC High (2-0) – The Eagles have taken a page from the old Xaverian Brothers playbook as they come at you with a dominant running game and a stifling defense. BC High will now travel to New Jersey to play against Hudson Catholic High School on Saturday.
  3. St. John’s Shrewsbury (2-0) – To beat the Pioneers you are going to have to score a lot of points as they have a ton of talented players on offense and they average almost fifty points per game.
  4. Central Catholic High School (2-0) – An impressive 21-0 victory over St. John’s Prep makes Central Catholic the biggest threat to Everett come playoff time.
  5. Xaverian Brothers (1-1) – The Hawks are a young team and they bounced back from their loss to Everett with a good win over a banged up Bridgewater-Raynham team. Travel out of state to play Archbishop Stepinac High Scool in New York this Saturday.
  6. Marshfield High School (1-1) – The fact that Marshfield has the caliber of players to give BC High a good game shows that they will very likely be playing for a state championship this year. Falmouth visits Marshfield on Friday night.
  7. St. John’s Prep (1-1) – A tough shutout loss to Central Catholic and then you get a visit from top ranked Everett. Yikes.
  8. Lexington High School (2-0) – The Minutemen offense continues to generate a lot of points but their defense gave up quite a few to Concord-Carlisle this past week as well.
  9. Bridgewater-Raynham High School (1-1) – A couple of key injuries left B-R shorthanded going into their game at Xaverian Brothers.
  10. Mashpee High School (2-0) – Another highly ranked team with a dominant running attack that will be very tough to stop given their line play and talent at running back.
  11. Tewksbury High School (2-0) – Getting a little bit nervous about Tewksbury being this highly ranked after surviving two very close games and undefeated North Andover next up.
  12. King Philip High School (2-0) – Held on to beat Foxboro and they will now face Attleboro and then a showdown with a very good Mansfield team.
