Xavier is No. 1

It’s unanimous.

Xavier is the No. 1 team in the final Register Top 10 football poll.

The Falcons (13-0), the Class LL state champions, received all 25 first-place votes from the panel of sportswriters and finished with 750 points.

It marked the second straight year, and fourth time overall, that Xavier topped the poll. It’s also the first unanimous selection since the Falcons finished No. 1 in 2005. Xavier defeated Staples 42-7 in this year’s Class LL final.

“This is something we worked so hard for, something that we really wanted to get,” Xavier senior running back Mike Mastroianni said. “Since freshman (year), we knew what our goals were. We wanted to win it all, to go undefeated and to win states. Last year was an amazing feeling. To do it again is something unbelievable, and something very few people can say they have done.”

Class L champion, and fellow Southern Connecticut Conference member, Hand (13-0) was second with 698 points. Class M champ Ansonia (14-0) was third (652), Staples (11-1) was fourth (564) and Masuk (11-1) was fifth (530).
