Granby Leaps Ahead With Key Win Over Woodbridge

Special seasons have a moment where a team can look back and see the turning point. On Friday night, Granby may have had their moment. The Comets came into the game with a 2-0 record and something to prove against Woodbridge of the Northwest Region. The Vikings brought in their blue chip lineman, DaShawn Hand, who’s ranked by many as the #1 recruit in the nation for the Class of 2014. Granby overcame the hype, and their own mistakes, to close the game out with decisive plays that earned them the win.

ACC Adds Irish

ACC officials announced this morning that the conference is adding Notre Dame as the 15th member of the conference, expanding the league’s footprint and bringing a national presence to the league that’s been purely coastal up to this point. Football is not officially part of the equation, but ACC football schedules will have a lot of Notre Dame presence, and that’s good for the conference as a whole.
