Inside The Huddle: Fairfield Prep

Alumni Field, Fairfield
Coach: Tom Shea (4th year, 14-16)
Conference: SCC
2012 Record: 6-4
2013 Kickoff: at Stamford, Sept. 12, 7 p.m.
Top offensive players: Colton Smith, 6-0, 170, Jr., QB; John DelliSanti, 6-2, 190, Jr., WR; Joe Ganim, 5-10, 180, Jr., RB; Anthony Palozzollo, 6-6, 302, Jr., OL; Andrew Ostrosky, 6-3, 220, Sr., TE; Stephen Walsh, 6-0, 175, Sr., WR; Jack Snopkowski, 5-8, 140, Jr., WR.
Top defensive players: Nick Crowle, 6-3, 245, Sr., LB; Anthony Johnson, 6-0, 198, Sr., LB; Tony Fox, 6-3, 254, Sr., DE; Max Trudeau, 6-0, 195, Sr., LB; Tom Cirillo, 6-1, 252, Sr., DE; Tim Falvey, 6-0, 177, Sr., DB.
Key losses: Chris Golger, RB/LB; Stecker Backe, QB; John Moten, RB; Matt Montani, LB; David Gerics, DB.
Outlook: Shea says the offensive line has good size but can they jell into an effective unit? Another question is: can the defense allow as few of points as last season? The Jesuits allowed just 13.9 points last season. Smith will start under center after playing sparingly last season. Ganim will be called upon to be the team’s primary running back after the graduation of Chris Colger. Fairfield Prep also lost junior running back John Moten, who transferred to a school in Missouri after rushing for 509 yards and 12 touchdowns as a sophomore. DelliSanti, pictured above, could have a breakout year at receiver after catching 18 passes and three touchdowns last season.  Crowle and Fox have the talent to be two of the best defenders in the SCC. Crowle has verbally committed to Yale, while Fox is headed to Fordham. Palozzolo is being recruited by Boston College, UConn, Miami and Penn State.
