Took a trip with former Trumbull coach and St. Luke’s assistant Jerry McDougall to Cromwell for the unveiling of the rosters for the Connecticut-Rhode Island Governor’s Cup All-Star football game, which will be played June 26 at Rentschler Field in East Hartford (7 p.m.)
It’s pretty good list, considering the usual spate of big-time college players that typically miss the game because of their summer commitments to their new schools. Noticeably absent are players from Staples, Cheshire, New Canaan, Darien, St. Joseph, Greenwich. It should be noted that some of them will be members of the New Haven-Fairfield County all-star game two weeks after the Governor’s Cup.
Anyway, here’s the list. We’ll have the Rhode Island All-Star list shortly.
Regional players are in bold.
