Couple of items of note from beyond Fairfield County before we continue with pressing questions.
First is the bad news from Waterbury that Sacred Heart standout junior receiver David Coggins was likely lost for the season with a broken ankle. The news was reported by the NVL Football Blog.
Coggins has been star for two seasons and was named one of the nation’s top sophomores last season by MaxPreps.com. In two seasons, he’s amassed 139 receptions for 2,256 yards and 17 touchdowns. He caught 78 passes for 1,427 yards and 9 touchdowns a year ago, leading the Hearts into the Class S postseason.
He broke the ankle during a scrimmage vs. Pomperaug while playing defense.
He’s the second top receiver to go down in the NVL. Derby receiver Jake Tomczak tore his ACL just days before fall practice officialy began.
HILLHOUSE OL COMMITS TO UCONN – Hillhouse coach Tom Dyer announced Wednesday offensive lineman Rennick Bryan has verbally committed to play at UConn. Bryan, a 6-foot-3, 300-pound senior, has played varsity for two seasons and was a part of last year’s Class M state championship team.
We’ll have more from the SCC and NVL later… if Hurricane Irene doesn’t get us first.
