First, Naugatuck finalized its game with East Longmeadow (Mass.) and it will be played on Friday, Sept. 16, at East Longmeadow High at 7 p.m. For any of you hoping that Naugatuck and Seymour would find a way to drop their Week 1 opponents to play again, that won't be the case. Naugy is locked into this game and Seymour has already said it would play Putnam if the tech schools lose football.
Second, this week (July 25-29) is the first session of the University of New Haven team camp. I know Woodland will be there this week along with some other area schools, I'm sure. The second session is next week. If anyone will be attending parts of the camp or the scrimmages at the end of the week, feel free to post some reports.
Third, if you come from a school that will be having any events (fundraisers, etc.) over the rest of the summer and they would like them publicized, feel free to drop us a line and we'll be happy to post something.
Finally, Mark Jaffee at the Rep-Am has done early previews and updates of local teams on the Red Zone blog. All of the links to these previews are located in the team previews box in the right sidebar.
We hope everyone's enjoying their summer and staying cool. Just a few weeks before practice starts!
