Best of the 2000s

Ten years ago, Bob Barton, a retired Register copy editor, listed his Top 10 (plus an extra) games of the 1900s.

Included in the list were:

At No. 9: Hillhouse 28, New Britain 20 (Nov. 5, 1960): Future NFL Hall of Famer Floyd Little ran for 153 yards and scored all four of the Academics' touchdowns in this victory.

At No. 1: Derby 28, Seymour 18 (Sept. 27, 1969): Derby came in unbeaten in 24 games and trailed 18-0 late in the third quarter before rallying for victory.

Now that 10 years have passed in this century, what are your choices for best games of the 2000s (so far)?

Stewart content with his decision

Xavier linebacker Graham Stewart recently orally committed to attend Boston College next fall.
The 6-foot-1, 225 pound Stewart said several things factored into his decision to attend the ACC school.

"Not only is it a perfect fit for me, but also for my family," Stewart said.

Stewart's brother, Clinton, lives in the Boston area.

"I'm family oriented; I really love my family," Graham Stewart said. "It's in Boston, so I still feel like I am out of state but it's close enough to home. Academically, I can't go wrong. Some friends of mine play in the ACC so it's just a perfect fit."
