Greenwich 7…. Don Bosco Prep 42
Whoever was manning the game for MSG Varsity’s Mike Quick (and it might have been Mike) summed it up thusly:
Bosco’s Quam Muhammad showed Greenwich what NJ football is all about today

This shouldn’t come as a shock for the sane among us. Don Bosco isn’t just a New Jersey power. It’s a national football factory. So if you were looking to see how one of ours stacked up against that kind of evil, you got a small taste.
Then again, this was only a scrimmage. Imagine if it was for real.
But it still would have been fun to watch. Unfortunately, I couldn’t hop over the Tappan Zee to check it out like many of you had hoped.
But our own David Fierro filed this report from Ramsey, N.J.
Dave also blogged about the scrimmage here.
But let’s not go nuts. We’re not playing the likes of Bosco or Bergen Catholic. This isn’t a referendum on where Connecticut stacks vs. the country. Frankly, I don’t care. And nor should you.
This is about preparing for the Connecticut 2012 season. We want to know how our teams stack up against our teams.
There were plenty of other scrimmages out there (Ansonia vs. Notre Dame-West Haven, anyone?). So if you have a citizen’s report or (even better) any Rick Volk-esque footage, clue the rest of us ravenous high school football mavens in on what you saw.
I’ll be back on the trail Wednesday to see a few local scrimmages. Stay tuned.
