Every fall here at NMHS is accompanied by optimism for the football season. This year looks to be the year that it’s all coming together, as they’re 3-1 to open the season. With their new aggressive style, the offense has exploded, averaging 31 points per game. This impressive start has created a buzz among the team’s players, as well as their fans. The student section is electric and the skill players are flying around the new turf.

When asked about this year’s team, Captain and All-SWC Wide Receiver Max Vaughey said, “We have this program moving in the right direction. We just got a new facility, new uniforms, and most importantly, we are winning football games. The players and coaches put in the work all off-season and it’s starting to show on Friday nights. We need to keep this momentum rolling and become a power in the league every year.”

The season continues on Friday, October 14th when The Wave will take on Notre Dame-Fairfield at home. Notre Dame has struggled this far with a 1-3 record, but New Milford will not be taking them lightly. The Wave won 34-6 in their showdown with Notre Dame last year and Notre Dame-Fairfield will likely be out for revenge. “We both run the spread offense so both defenses get to practice against it every day,” said wide receiver and cornerback Austin Swanson. “That experience against the play style should make this a defensive battle that will whittle down to who wants it more.”

The rest of the squad’s schedule will not be easy, as they have yet to face rivals Brookfield and New Fairfield. Still, the team remains optimistic that they can continue their success and battle through adversity. On what to expect the rest of the season, Swanson said, “Tyler Sullivan is looking good behind center and we have a backup QB who understands the offense. If we can stop the run on defense, we’ll finish the season on a strong note looking at a potential playoff spot.” If the team is able to continue scoring and defending at their current rate, students can look forward to an exciting finish to the 2016 season.
