The High School Football season officially begins Wednesday when Seymour takes on O'Brien Tech in Derby(isn't it ironic the game is there since O'Brien used to co-op with Derby) and then Thursday, there are a handful of games and obviously Friday and Saturday a slew of games. I'll start my coverage in Milford Thursday when Sheehan visits Jonathan Law and Friday it will be Amity at West Haven. The Road to the State Championships commences. We'll have scores of other games as well throughout the season.
One week during the season, the listeners will have a chance to pick the featured game of the week by voting on our website and facebook.
