Video: Lou Marinelli’s final postgame speech

New Canaan High School’s run of six straight trips to state championship football games ended today following a 27-21 Class L semifinal loss to Windsor at Bunnell High School.

The Rams looked headed for a dramatic comeback for the second straight year against Windsor when Michael DiCosmo returned a fumble 79 yards for a touchdown with 47 seconds left. But Windsor recovered the ensuing onside kick, ending New Canaan’s season at 9-3.

Here is New Canaan coach Lou Marinelli’s final postgame speech of the season to his players.
