Prep school rivals Hamden Hall and Hopkins to clash Saturday

Both Hamden Hall and Hopkins enter Saturday's prep school contest with identical 3-3 records.

Hamden Hall, coach by NFL agent Joe Linta, is balanced offensively. The Hornets pass and ran fairly equally.

The Hornets are led by sophomore quarterback T.J. Linta, the coach's son, who has thrown for 10 touchdowns. Senior running back Curtis Antrum has rushed for 915 yards and eight scores, while senior fullback Marc Cafasso has gained valuable yardage as well.

"We have our work cut out for us," Hopkins coach Tom Parr said. "The Linta boy is a great QB, but they also have Antrum and Cafasso. They have a lot of weapons. Doing the spread that they do, it's always hard to defend."

Hopkins is led by senior quarterback Greg Volpe and running backs Jashon DeSenna and Jim Martino.

"They're well-coached," Joe Linta said. "Tom is a real pro, he does a very nice job. They're a grind-it-out type team. They do a very good job of controlling the offense. I think we're pretty even on paper."

Kickoff is set for noon at Hopkins in New Haven. Hamden Hall has not defeated Hopkins since 2001.
