- Former Ansonia running back Montrell Dobbs officially committed to Temple after an outstanding prep season at Milford Academy in which he earned the team's Offensive MVP Award. Dobbs rushed for 1,366 yards and 20 touchdowns in one of the best seasons in program history. Fellow Falcon and former Naugatuck lineman Aaron Echevarria will play at Southern Connecticut.
- The Walter Camp Awards were the final honors to be announced (and were last week). Ansonia running back Arkeel Newsome was named State Player of the Year and was one of two running backs on the Walter Camp All-Connecticut Team. Other NVL selections to the team included Brenden Lytton (DB, Torrington), Hakeem Martin (OL, Ansonia), Dylan Vano (OL, Ansonia), and Tyler Wood (LB, Ansonia). See the full team here.
- Holy Cross defensive coordinator Mike Mannetti was hired Wednesday as Post University's second sprint football head coach, reports the Rep-Am's Mark Jaffee. He succeeds Pete Ewald, who is leaving to start a program at Franklin Pierce University. Mannetti was previously an offensive coordinator at Post.
- Finally, we haven't forgotten about the NVL Blog Awards. We should be finishing them up very soon and have them posted next week. Sorry about the delay, we've been enjoying some time away from constant administration of the blog.
So far this offseason, there has been no earth-shattering news, but if anything does come up, you'll see it here first. Enjoy the winter, folks.
