As the season kicked off back in September, conventional wisdom had the FCIAC placing three or four teams in the state football playoffs.
Staples? A lock. Greenwich? Almost a lock. New Canaan. Most probably.
But St. Joseph? A decent shot. Trinity Catholic? No way.
Those five schools will now represent the FCIAC in all four of the state’s divisions.
You will be inundated with analyses, previews and predictions over the next two days.
For now, during the calm before the storm, we ask a simple question: which of the five teams has the best chance to win a state title? Staples or Greenwich in Class LL, New Canaan in L, St. Joseph in M or Trinity Catholic in S?
We will keep the vote open until the teams kickoff at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
